Decanter for wine and liquor (likeur).

There is an even smaller one (elixer decanter).

Alle glassware has 3 sizes of decanters and this one called ''E'' has 10 different sized glasses to accompany them.

The blue vase is vase ''E''.
It is the same shape as the decanter, but inverted.

De Bazel often uses this principle.

    Does the green glass glow under UV light or black light?

    Only the ''annagroen'' glass does. That's the light green. They used something like uranium to get that colour.

    On the name of the term 'annagroen' .... do you know where it comes from?
  4. Bazelmania Bazelmania, 5 years ago
    I was told that it was named after the wife of the ''creator'' of this coulor, Anna.
    Groen is Dutch for green.

    I just found this on Wikipedia"
    "The first major producer of items made of uranium glass is commonly recognized as German Josef Riedel, who named the yellow (German: Gelb) and yellow-green (German: Gelb-Grün) varieties of the glass "annagelb" and "annagrün", respectively, in honor of his wife Anna Maria. Riedel was a prolific blower of uranium glass in Unter-Polaun (today Dolni Polubny), Bohemia from 1830 to 1848."

    Thanks. I knew that Annageel also exists, so it's correct.
