Elegant Pair of French Silver and Crystal Liquor Decanters or ‘Carafes’ by ‘Maitre Orfèvre’ Albert DEFLON
The Crystal is blown in a twisting shape giving it a lovely aspect to the two carafes.
The bottom of the Carafes is covered with Silver worked in a painted wave design, typical of the Rocaille Style or Louis XV Style.
The Upper part of the carafes is decorated with the same pattern which graces the silver and crystal stoppers as well.
The crystal bodies are in perfect shape!
Due to their small size these two charming Carafes were definitely reserved for ‘Liqueur’.
The Hallmark is Minerve -1st title (950/1000)- 1838 -1919–Paris
