Vintage Portuguese Decanter

R220.00

Nearly all of the vintage moulded decanters (or ‘genie bottles’ as they’re normally known) that I come across are Italian – I think this is probably the first Portuguese version that I’ve seen. It’s slightly different in style to the Italian versions, being a bit shorter, with a rather unusual shape, but it’s just as attractive (in that super kitsch, horribly bad taste kind of way!). It has loads of embellishments, making it rather interesting, and is in great condition – the plastic stopper, which is so often damaged, seems to be nice and clean.

A nice piece for a collector of this moulded glass – I know most people probably think they’re quite terrible, but grouped together, and with the light shining being them, the bottles can look quite striking!

Dimensions: 42cm tall x cm in 11diameter (at its widest)
