Details: This beautiful Swan decanter by Riedel, its elegant lines perfectly inspired by its snow-white feathered namesake, features mouth-blown, handmade elegance. The long, graceful neck is a stunning visual sensation and the pour spout at the top is designed for drip-resistance. The wide opening on the opposite side allows an easy transfer of the wine from the bottle to the decanter. Made of fine crystal for added brilliance, this Swan decanter stands 23-5/8 inches tall.The intriguing appeal of a familiar form distilled to its essence...at the hands of a master glassblower, Riedel's Swan decanter transcends to a magnificent work of art. Perched on a dining table or sideboard, this expressive piece swoops from the slender, elongated neck (the pour spout) to the ample body (with plenty of room for wine to breathe) and skyward again to the upturned tail (where wine is poured in). The dramatic curves also fit surprisingly comfortably into the hand for lifting and the well-balanced proportions make for flawless tilting to meet a wine glass. Mouth-blown of premium 24-percent leaded crystal for radiance and clarity, the decanter holds a standard-sized bottle of wine and measures a dramatic 23-5/8 inches high. The renowned Riedel family of Austria has specialized in fine glassware for more 300 years and holds every piece to exacting standards of quality and originality. Hand washing is recommended. --Kara Karll
