This exciting new book, the result of five years' research and writing is the first-ever in-depth study of the leading vessel in the European glassmakers' repertoire between 1650 -1950. In presenting the subject on a wide stage, The Decanter provides the reader with a history of European and American glassmaking from 'a decanter perspective'. Illustrated by photographs and patterns and drawings of thousands of examples drawn from numerous public and private collections, the text encompasses the stylistic and technical evolution of fine glassmaking and its influences and social uses.
