GEORGE III CUT GLASS SUGAR-LOAF DECANTER
England, c1770

 

 

The body with high shoulders in "sugar-loaf" (or mallet) form, resembling the "Masonic maul",
having a horizontal band of polished oval flowerheads alternating with cut stars
between and upper and lower bands of ovals alternating with stars;

the base with a band up upright fluting; the neck and ovoid stopper each with facet cutting;
polished pontil; the base with good footrim wear

 

The name "Sugar-Loaf" is taken from the shapes in which sugar was sold in the late 18th century.
"The form was first made about 1750, and enjoyed popularity for about 30 years….
the basic shape, a tapered neck widening to a firmly-formed shoulder
and a body that also tapered outwards toward the base….
the shoulder becoming less pronounced , and the taper decanter….
remaining popular for the rest of the century".
(Great British Wine Accessories, Butler, p.130)
