    Wow, those are pretty great as well. I see Rughi had a few posts about them a few years back.

    Looking into some of the others, it appears that the decanter businsses followed the trend of:
    • 1955ish-1965ish: Elegant modern glass decanters
    • 1965ish-1970ish: Wildlife!
    • 1970ish-1980ish: Ceramic!


    I think I'll take the first.

    Yeah, having a 12 set piece of candle holders would have sold it for me!

    I agree, I like the various glass decanters over some of the later styles, especially the cut glass.
