Victorian & Later Decanters

This section comprises decanters made between 1830 and 1930, although most of our decanters were made before 1880.   During this period many decanters were coloured often with a 'casing' of coloured glass over a clear body and cut decoratively to showcase the cutter's art. 

Blue, green and yellow-cased decanters are well suited to serving white wine, while red-cased ones are perfect for red wines.  This idea may not reflect common perceptions of decanter use, but we have found many customers who enjoy surprising their guests in this way!
