Antiques column: Decanters can provide a positive collecting field

Ship's decanter

Ship's decanter

  • by William Wilson
 

Everyone can picture a glass decanter.

Sitting on the sideboard with a rare scotch brandy, or the like, contained inside. An object once frequently used but now used little except for those special occasions.

Decanters with their varying form and interesting history can provide a positive collecting field. Not only are they decorative but they can be practicable for those special occasions and everyday use.

Read William’s full column in this Thursday’s (1 May) Pocklington Post.
