The cultural history of material objects can reflect events and industrial processes in unexpected and interesting ways. They were often created to cater to specific social trends or phenomena, became part of the fabric of everyday life, but then disappeared almost as quickly as they appeared, to be replaced in time by improved versions and styles. The bar lip decanter is one such object, and its history offers a fascinating glimpse of the social and economic development of America’s first hundred years, as well as the evolution of glass manufacturing in this country. It appears that the bar lip decanter was an exclusively American form.

As the pioneer population gradually pushed further westward during the early nineteenth century, agriculture soon became established as the principal occupation. Grain and fruit were among the primary cash crops of the frontier, both for local sale and as barter. The problem with their wider distribution, however, was the primitive transportation system. With roads often impassable and rivers subject to flood and drought, their efficient shipment to urban centers often proved impossible. Far from their markets, and with bruised or rotten fruit valueless, soft-fruit and grain farmers in far-flung locations turned to an ancient method of maximizing their yield: by distilling it into liquor.
