Details: This stunning new Ships Decanter will make a wonderful addition to your bar. What better way to complement your fine whiskeys than with a classic Waterford Crystal Decanter. Ship's or Captain's Crystal Decanter is a uniquely shaped crystal container that historically was used to hold liquor on-board of a sailing ship. The large base was designed to give the container added stability while the ship was riding the waves at sea. As a symbol of affluence, the Crystal Decanter would have been found only in the captain's quarters of the ship. The Ships Decanter features a wide base with elegant curves that extend into a long, narrow neck, topped with a stunning hand cut crystal stopper. Elegant design and incredible craftsmanship make this piece an essential for any bar.
