is a pair of rare French beautiful art glass decanters with a lovely long ribbed neck and bulbus base. They each have four compartments or sections with four pointed and arched stoppers giving an overall stylish effect. These are typically used for liqueurs and cordials. The bottles are a heavy clear glass that is stamped on the bottom, MADE IN FRANCE. They are stunning by themselves, or could be also used as an unique flower vase.

The decanter pictured on the left has a more pear shaped bottom, and measures 13 inches tall and 16 inches in diameter at its widest point. It is in excellent to mint condition. The decanter on the right has a wider middle that tapers down again towards the bottom. It measures about 12.5 inches tall and 17 inches in diameter. It does have some stains on the inside, which I imagine could be bleached out, although I did not try. This decanter also has a large ¾ inch chip out of the beveled base. While, large, it is also easily hidden by simply turning the bottle. (If you win this auction and prefer not to pay for shipping of the second bottle, I will recalculate the shipping for you for just the one.) These would make a great addition to any vintage liquor bottle or decanter collection, barware display, or French art glass collection.
