Two cruciform (cross-shape) decanters were excavated at the Newmarket archaeological site in the Society Hill section of Philadelphia, formerly the location of a row of town houses. Such vessels were molded to create a greater surface area that may have been advantageous when chilling beverages. Cruciform decanters are virtually unknown with engraved or other ornament and seem not to have included glass stoppers, though the rings at the rim were suitable for securing a cork.

Original target stopper with typical wide pouring rim. It has three applied and feathered neck rings above a Mallet Body. Engraved with a three mast sailing ship with full rigging and initials W F D inside cartouche surrounded by Scottish Thistles. Basal moulded comb fluting with a rough snapped pontil. Not marked but almost certainly from the CORK glass works. http://www.scottishantiquesinc.co.uk/georgian-glass/decanters (Brave)
