Breathtaking original antique French decanter with a unique thistle colored glass decorated with robust yet, delicate etched decorations. Octagonal in shape, this fine decanter is a bit smaller than the ones typically found for spirits and other libations. A fine silver throated neck ads an added surprise and gives elevated excitement to its matching stopper. A unique and stylish color, this thistle decanter is light purple and is a spectacle unto itself. That said, there is no good reason this fine bottle couldn't have been marketed for perfumes, ladie's liquor or the ever so popular rheumatism medicine. However you choose, it would serve an unlimited variety of potions or be lovely as it sits with nothing at all.
