EXQUISITE WHITEFRIARS CRYSTAL
DECANTER WITH 2 MATCHING FOOTED LIQUEUR
GLASSES DESIGNED BY GEOFREY BAXTER
Presenting an exquisite sparkling lead crystal decanter with
a pair of matching footed liqueur glasses in the iconic Glacier pattern
designed by the legendary Geofrey Baxter for Whitefriars, England.
This beautifully designed range remains just as popular
today as when it was first designed. The bold geometric
shapes, exquisite modernist texture and amazing crystal-clear
sparkle all combining to create an timeless iconic example
of mid century design that would suit any decor.
Glacier was the first of Whitefriars full lead crystal
textured tableware designs, setting the precedent for a whole
range of further designs that Whitefriars has become renowned for.
Whitefriars used between 24-30% lead crystal in the Glacier range,
which means this decanter and glass set is heavy and literally sparkles.
The classic square bodied decanter glistens with
a magnificent rugged bark textured surface. The tapered neck
of the decanter leads to a lovely wide flared rim with a gorgeous
round lolly-pop topped stopper perfectly completing the piece.
The two matching liqueur glasses sparkle with the
same crystal clear clarity beautifully enhanced by the organic
nature-inspired textured surface. Each glass stands an an untextured
stem and wide stable foot providing a gorgeous contrast.
These pieces are all perfectly balanced in form and weight, ensuring
they are both visually spectacular and a true delight to hold and use.
These beautifully designed examples of quality Mid 20th Century
design look breath takingly beautiful with light reflecting of
their textured surfaces. These pieces would look divine holding
a coloured liquid, casting beautifully rippled vibrant reflections.
This impressive decanter stands approx 200mms tall
without the stopper, and 270mms with the stopper.
The decanter measures 100mms in diameter.
The matching glasses each stand approx 95mms tall
and measure 53mms in width at their top rims.
This exquisite set is presented in excellent vintage condition,
with no chips, cracks or repairs. Each piece has a brilliant crystal
clear clarity and incredible sparkle with no cloudiness. These
pieces have been very well cared for and present spectacularly.
This stunning set would make a superb addition to
any Whitefriars, British art glass, Geofrey Baxter design,
Mid 20th Century design, or Glacier range setting!
This exceptional set would make a fine functional feature in any
modernist, eames era, retro or contemporary styled home!
These dazzling quality eye-catching pieces
would look divine on the Festive table
