6509 A Pair of Cut Shaft & Globe Decanters
This is a good, bright pair of Victorian decanters. The compressed globular bodies are profusely cut with printies (olives), stars and V grooves, while the bases are star-cut. The necks are panel-cut rising to everted lips. The stoppers are cut to match the bodies.
The cutting on these decanters allow a good observation of the wine inside as the cutting refracts light through the wine. They hold a full bottle each and the stoppers, like the decanters are scratch-numbered which allows a firm assertion that the stoppers are original to the bodies!
Dimensions: 11.8", 30 cm. high incl. stoppers
