This is a late 18th Century travelling century spirit decanter set. This beautiful set of decanters are housed in a mahogany case which is lavishly inlaid with Sheraton shell motifs and chevron borders and decorative brass escutcheon to the front. The interior is lined in original morocco leather with its fabric secure to avoid the lid falling back.The square hand blown decanters are richly ornamented with gilded star and floral motifs to the shoulders and floral motifs to each stopper.Spirit decanters of this quality and condition from this period are rare.

The decanters themselves are invariably of European manufacture with many being imported in the mid-eighteenth century for inclusion in English cases for retail.Note: there is one very small hairline crack in one of the decanters but it remains sturdy and watertight and does not affect it being put to use.
