5043 An Unusual Blue Shaft & Globe Decanter
As a clear decanter, this might not be very unusual, but in the rich 'Bristol blue' shade, it is distinctly rare. It follows the usual shaft-and-globe form and is devoid of decoration except for the neck being panel- or slice-cut. The stopper is a ball resting on a panel-cut waisted section, while the top is star cut. The stopper appears to be hollow but the colour is sufficiently rich to me observation of this difficult.
While shaft & globe decanters are quite common and do not attract attention, this is the exception. Being a rich shade of blue it is most striking in its appearance.
Coloured decanters like this are perfect for serving white wine, fortified wines, port or spirits, and they add a visual statement to a dining room.
Dimensions: 11.5", 29.2 cm. high incl. stopper.
