5078 A Pretty Amber Engraved Decanter with Thistle Stopper
This is an unusual decanter of paleish amber colour. The body is finely wheel-engraved with fruiting vine decoration with frilly tendrils. The neck and shoulders are finely panel-cut, while the base is star-cut. The stopper is a hollow octagonal thistle shape with a facetted knop and star-cut on top.
Decanters of this colour are perfect for white wine and can pleasantly surprise guests if used that way. This one holds a full bottle and is fit for purpose.
