Style notes — Georgian period mainly refers to the second half of the 18th century and up to the 1820s. The style was predominantly neo-classical, that looked back at the ancient Greece and Rome and used those elements in design and decoration. Most Georgian items have straight and very clean lines and elegant repetitive floral patterns.
Facts of Lavish Tip — clouded surface inside an old decanter is hard to fix, it requires a vibrating machine and acid; but this is a non-issue, because when a decanter is full with liquid, the glass becomes transparent.
