This blue glass "ships" decanter is a very distinctive and iconic item of glassware and will bring a real touch of style to your sideboard. Ships decanters go back in time to when English naval ships set sail across the high seas. The large and flat bulbous part was purposely designed to be sited at the lower end so that the decanter would not be top heavy, so preventing it from toppling over as the ship swayed about on the waves.
Well, here are some very good reasons...
No moulds. No mass production. No short-cuts. No rivals.
