« on: October 05, 2012, 11:34:20 AM »
Heavy decanter or a carafe as its quite thin at the top it surely would not have a stopper or is it a vase ? cased at the base.Flint almost cinnamon colour .Measures 22.5cm high by 11.5cm at the base weighs aprox 1kg

Caithness and missing a stopper, I believe. At work so no book to work out which model

I agree with Christine it seems to be a Caithness Morven Decanter, #4025, designed by Domhnall Obroin c. 1964(Mark Hill's book page 38).

Colours included Peat(probably yours), Moss, Loch or Heather.  Sold up till 1988.

I have just listed one. The stoppers do come up on ebay now and then. Saw one a while back listed as a tot/toddy glass.

The stopper is completely impractical as a shot/measure/toddy.
I did try it out, when this came up in discussion before.

The problem would be the waste - once you put liquid in it, it doesn't come out, it gets trapped in the bottom part.  :P

Will be keeping my Brandy away from it.  !!  It is a nice Decanter nonetheless. Hope OP can find a stopper. it is very difficult to get an exact fit.

None of them are actually made to fit - they just sit on top. Any stopper the correct design and colour will fit.

quote................."The stopper is completely impractical as a shot/measure/toddy.       I did try it out, when this came up in discussion before."         I take it this was just to test the practicalities of the stopper Sue ;)
I guess you could just drink straight from the decanter ;)

Re stoppers not quite fitting.................On someone's recommendation, I bought some valve grinding paste today  -  I've a red decanter where the stopper doesn't quite fit perfectly.        With a little twisting and turning, this is supposed to remedy the situation, and give a silky smooth fit - time will tell. :)
