Handsome antique cut-crystal Scotch whisky decanter fitted with a Betjemann's patented lock. A silvered collar about the neck of the decanter holds a locking mechanism. An arm slides forward to grasp and hold a heavy multi- facet-cut stopper in place. The stopper rests within a widely flaring pouring lip. The Victorian decanter is extensively and deeply cut on all sides along with a star-cut pattern upon its base. Retains original key. Retailed by George Betjemann & Sons in their shop in Pentonville Road, London circa 1890. 9 1/2" H.
