6604 An extraordinary set of 10 Georgian-style carafes.
Long sets of decanters or carafes seldom come to the market, so I was delighted to find these. They are a set of ten carafes made in the Georgian style in the late Victorian period, say, c. 1880 - 1920. They are of mallet shape, cut at the neck with panel-cutting and around the base of the body with fine flutes
Each carafe holds a bottle (75 cl.) and is bright and clear with no chips, cracks or cloudiness. Indeed, they are fit for purpose and could be used immediately. They would look stunning on a long dining table, perhaps with red and white wines in them.
