As I am guessing vlkma is going to show the picture of his Nanny Still Rex decanters very soon, I am going to be a bad guy and be first this time :D
Wow, I am really impressed with the collection he’s putting together lately. The old one, with such amazing art glass pieces is truly awesome, and I just love the pieces he’s adding to it lately, pieces I’ve got or I would certainly love to add to my own colection, such as the amazing X series decanters by Tamara Aladin.
If some genie from a lamp asks me three wishes I'd ask to chose all the pieces I could from the collections of both vlkma, glaswareguy and cobalt!!! :)

The Rex decanters were made in 1964-1965 and were in catalogue from 1965 to 1967. The series consists of several different glasses (whisky, grog, On the rocks, cocktail, sherry, dram, snaps), several bowls, two ice-bowls, a champagne cooler (this is the piece I would love to have!!!) and… 4 decanters!!! My guess is that there are two sizes for each shape and I think the tall decanter should be 1836 and the shorter one 1794... I hope someone can confirm this.
I’ve seen them in blue, purple and green… and maybe, I’m not too sure, brown.
