This is a 30s to 50s champagne coloured decanter with 5 matching glasses, sitting on a Lister Wood Craft walnut decanter tray.
This lot came in the post today from some lovely person on eBay. The decanter is supposed to be Whitefriars, but I don't believe it is, as it's not listed in my books and the way the peg of the stopper is fitted to the decanter is not done the way Whitefriars do it. Who cares, I have a real purpose made, not for any other use, decanter tray. It doesn't get any better than that.
