|From Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia, this 19th century wine decanter was turned, then hand carved with distinctively Georgian designs. Wine making and wine drinking have been serious pursuits for many centuries in Georgia, so many of the country's old, collectible objects center around viniculture. This decanter is evocative of Georgia's ethnography, a melange of Asian, Middle Eastern and European that reflects its geographic role as an East-West crossroad. Three cups carved with the same design are part of the wine service. All pieces are in excellent condition. Decanter dimensions: height 11" (28 cm), diameter 3 1/2 (9 cm). Cup dimensions: height 1 1/2" (6 cm), diameter 2" (5 cm).|
