Vintage cut-glass decanter

I bought this cut-glass decanter from the same couple that I bought that beautiful blue decanter from a few months back. It was another piece that they had inherited, and I suspect that it’s from more or less the same period. The glass really is quite beautiful with its dark green base trimmed with gold, and finished off with a faceted stopper. The stopper gives the impression of being crystal, but I’m fairly certain that it’s not – the finish isn’t nearly as fine as you’d expect with a piece of crystal glass, although it’s still a very delicate piece of glass.

A beautifully elegant decanter for your drinks trolley or bar – pair it with some vintage glasses and you’ll add some serious vintage style to your home.
