6565 A fine pair of green decanters by Richardsons
This is a fine and unusual pair of decanters, being a pale apple green and of narrow conical form - almost ship's decanters. The decanters are nine-sided and cut throughout their height with slice- or panel-cutting. They have three incised neck rings below the widely flared rims, while the undersides are radially cut with broad and narrow v-cutting. The heavy hollow stoppers are cut to match.
These are decanters of very high quality - evidenced by their weight (as glass was sold by the weight when these were made and these are surprisingly heavy). They are in excellent condition - bright and clear with no internal cloudiness and devoid of any significant chips or cracks. They would be eminently suitable for serving white wine.
Dimensions: 11.2", 28.4 cm. Incl stoppers
