6055 A Pair of Large Magnum Decanters


Click on the images to see more detail

This is an impressive and fine pair of large magnum decanters.  In fact, they will hold 3 bottles each, but to do that would leave little room above the wine to let it breathe.  However, if you really wanted to serve a half-dozen bottles, these would suffice.  Actually they would more than suffice - they would do do no end of good for the reputation of your hospitality!

The decanters have barrel-shaped bodies above star-cut bases.  The bodies are cut with two broad bands of long oval printies or 'olives' below the neck which is panel-cut.  The stoppers are cut to match.

This is a fine pair of large decanters  - almost plain, but sufficiently cut to refract light through the wine inside to best advantage.  They are in excellent condition without any chips or cracks and there is no cloudiness inside; they are bright and ready to be used!  

Date: c1880
