Just be careful Paul.  Glass and water have a very high surface tension.  Too good a fit will make the stopper unable to be removed.  Suggest you use the paste with a little vaseline so the surface tension is modified.

thanks for the warning Ross.........then you certainly wouldn't have liked my first idea which was to somehow fit the stopper into a chuck on my woodworking lathe, apply a little paste and gently offer up the body whilst the stopper was turning  -  all this to hasten the end result!!       I decided against this method just in case the two parts jammed whilst the stopper was still turning :o
However, I'd swear I have read in one of my books recently that chucking the stopper was a method used by some of the old guys.          I'll now try it manually, and when done will post pics of the decanter, whose origin I know nothing of. :)
