Lusitania Ships Decanter d19
A Traditional Ships Decanter with a wide base curving into a long narrow flute. 29cm tall. Heavy flat cut ball stopper.
Ships decanters were designed with an extra wide base to give added stability when the ship was riding the waves at sea and antique versions are widely prized today for their elegant designs and use of fine cut glass.
Cut in a traditional pattern our Lusitania Ship’s Decanter was inspired by designs that would have been seen on transatlantic liners over 100 years ago. The Cunard Line’s RMS Luisitania sank off the coast of Cork on May 7, 1915, after being torpedoed by a German submarine.
