George II Cruciform Glass Decanter (Carafe), England, c1740 

 

The thick moulded body with having subtle cruciform shape and rounded shoulders,

Note :
Late 17th and early 18th century decanters were made from heavy mould-blown glass
with high kicks in the base – the kicks offering larger surfaces for cooling
as well as protection from the often rough pontil.
They were used for serving. Stoppers, when used, were loose corks or plugs, secured with string.

Between 1720 and 1730, a group of carafes known as "cruciform decanters" were introduced.
They led quickly to the mid-18th century clear glass decanters with fitted stoppers.
