The silver collars are in excellent condition hallmarked G & Co London marks for Garrard & Co..... The middle slightly taller decanter is marked for P & W, Preece and Williscombe 1967. The glass is also in excellent condition, with no chips to the bodies of any of the decanters but a couple of very small fleabite nibbles to the end of just one of the stoppers....They are very small and commensurate with age. The carrying or display tantalus is made of oak and in excellent undamaged condition. It has brass decorations to the top with a strong brass handle. The height of the two matching decanters is 9 3/8 x 3 3/4 square. The middle decanter has slightly differently cut and shape to the stopper and is slightly taller at 9 1/2 x 3 1/2 square. Two are cut to exactly the same pattern. All are very clean inside and out.
I think the raised height in the middle adds to the interesting graduated look. Also when in use it is easier to identify the type of contents... The cutting style is GEORGIAN, it is diamond cut with hobnail at the top sectioned off with twin horizontal lines of deep cuts. They are very heavy and quite a handful.... The middle decanter also has slightly different cut over the shoulders, along with slightly more condensed diamond pattern on the lower half.
