Until the 1670s, wine was served at the table in jug or green glass bottle. The decanter started to appear after 1670 and usually took a jug form, it wasn't until the middle of the 1700s that decanters were seen in a form we are more familiar with now.

 

These two decanter labels are silver plated and have a grape leaf design in relief, the labels have a pierced decoration one saying “Champagne” the other “Claret”. These would have been in a middle income household.

 

The condition is very good with no splits or cracks, and the chain is in good order.
