Drinkies?

Last one for now!

This set is just a bit of fun, decanter 10 inches tall, hollow stopper, glasses 2 inches, made in France...but for what (presumably mind-blowingly strong) drink? Also 50's or 60's? Anyone?

I have a similar decanter set by JG Durand in its original box, which says it's for gin.

My guess is mid-late 60s.

Not at the moment, sorry - it's packed away in storage... somewhere!  :lol:

But going from memory, my decanter is quite similarly styled, and the stopper is near-identical. My glasses have quite heavy bases, though, and a curved tapering shape.

these are found a lot on fleamarkets in France, and yes they were made by Durand (aka Arques) in the 60s.  Not rare, though seldom complete.
