What's for sale?

This is an unusual and attractive Art Deco, intaglio, glass decanter in a straight-sided, conical shape by Webb Corbett.

This was part of a range designed by Herbert Webb in 1933, featuring a series of polished cuts in a wave pattern. The flat-topped stopper mirrors the shape of the neck.

An example of this decanter and matching glasses were part of a 2008 exhibition for Liberty of London, featuring items from its history. We've also seen a variation of this pattern with a wave and fern leaf design.

As can be the case with old decanters, this has some staining inside, on the bottom, where spirit has been left to evaporate. We've used a dark, contrasting background to show it in our last photograph. This can't be removed through normal cleaning.

This is a great opportunity to obtain a rare decanter from a sought-after maker.
