6028 A Pair of French Decanters in the English Style
This fine pair of decanters look, at first sight, to be English - they have that typical 'prussian' outline and with three neck rings. Closer inspection reveals that they are mould-blown with deep vertical ridges; the Englsih equivalents would have been 'pillar-cut'. The neck rings are applied and the ribbed sides extend into the base which forms a star pattern. The stoppers are ribbed in a writhen pattern.
These decanters are lead glass and weigh heavily, being 1,642 and 1,771 grams respectively - about twice the weight of an average English decanter.
They are very fit for purpose, being without any chips, cracks or cloudiness.
Dimensions: 11.5", 29.2 cm. high incl. stoppers.
