Pair of Hand Blown Cobalt Crystal "Ship Decanters"

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

The deep rich blue of these cobalt decanters speak for themselves. The wide bases were designed to create a low center of gravity helping to balance the decanters in rough seas. The clean cutting of the body is facet cut in a "rayed" pattern, the polished pontil and 4 rings along the neck and flattened stopper add to the complexity and beauty of this pair.
