Decanter with Ticket

Decanter with Ticket

Decanter with Ticket

A wine decanter was used not only to pour wine at the table but gave the effect that the owner was connoisseur of  wine.  The decanter pictured is a reproduction of an original owned by Thomas Jefferson and is in the “Indian Club” shape.  What looks like a chain around the neck of the decanter is a ticket which indicates what type of wine is in the decanter.
