The decanter features an ovoid body with a cylindrical knopped neck and flared mouth. The decanter is covered by a stopper with a mushroom-shaped knop and conical end.
This decanter is crafted from glass which is ruby red in colour. The decanter’s body is finely decorated with gilt swirling patterns, cross-hatched medallions and stylised floral motifs. At its centre front, there is a detailed half-length portrait of Naser al-Din Shah Qajar, who was the king of Persia from 1848-1896. This portrait is flanked by medallions, containing orange, blue, white, yellow and green enamel flowers. An orange enamelled lion, holding a sword, decorates the reverse side of the decanter’s body. The body is also covered with raised red enamel beads, which imitate jewels. The decanter’s neck and stopper are similarly decorated with gilt patterns, enamel flowers and raised beads.
The decanter was crafted in Bohemia in the late 19th Century, but was intended for the Persian market.
