Awesome Bergen Genie Bottle Florida Decanter – SOLD
This decanter, cut in Bergen’s Florida pattern, is simply one of the most unusual forms in Brilliant Cut Glass. It is genie bottle in shape with a cut-in-pattern stopper of the exact same shape – truly a touch of class. This exact piece is pictured clearly in the ACGA’s Bergen catalog reprint.
While this pattern is understated, it works perfectly with the unusual shape of the decanter. Notched prism is spread throughout and alternates with flutes and notched cutting. Around the perimeter of the decanter, there are clear cut punties which work as an optical lens when looking through the decanter. The base features a rayed star. The stopper features the exact same punty, notched prism and flutes and notching at the top. It is hollow with an air bubble contained within.
The decanter is in perfect condition and measures 9 3/8″ tall and 6 1/2″ wide. I had two of these but have sold the other one.
