Crystal 'Hogget' Decanter with Sterling Silver Stand & Collar.
The Hogget decanter is pure mouth blown crystal with a domed base and sits in a sterling silver hallmarked stand. It has an elegant hallmarked sterling silver collar. Both are handmade in England.
The story behind the hogget decanter is quite amusing, and was invented to stop the potential problem of a guest forgetting their manners and "hogging" the Decanter. The Crystal Decanter has a rounded bottom, making it impossible to put down until it has been returned to the host, who can rest it in the specially designed silver stand.
