Decanter Stoppers in London, UK?
« on: October 11, 2009, 07:01:58 PM »
I have two decanters without stoppers. One is a green Holmegaard Klik-Klak (I think that is the right name),and the other a clear block like Stromberg. Would anybody be able to point me in the right direction to find some kind of replacement stoppers. Thanks

The Holmegaard one (proper name is klukflaske in Danish, and were marketed under the 'Cluck-Cluck' moniker in English) would have originally had a clear, uncut, solid ball-shaped stopper. You can usually find stoppers along the correct lines at antique fairs , and sometimes on eBay in joblots of other stoppers.

Getting them to fit is a pain, but you could always send off a suitable and slightly over-sized replacement to a glass restorer and have them 'shave' some glass off to get it to fit for a relatively small amount. Or, if the decanters are terribly special ones, you could likely get new ones blown for you for around the £30-£40 mark.
