The limited edition Flamingo, Swan, and Paloma decanters by Riedel, the preeminent name in wine glasses, are free blown works of art that not only push the limits of performance and design, but the limitations of the medium itself. Designed by Maximilian Riedel and his father, Georg, the decanters were inspired by a flock of birds in flight.
The Flamingo decanter, which is near 24 inches in height, has a lip that shears off at an acute angle, providing for a drip-free pour. The Swan’s gently curved body flows seamlessly into the neck before narrowing to form the elliptical lip. Wine is simply decanted into the wider opening of the swan’s tail, which also forms the handle for service. The Paloma’s undulating, elongated form, which stands nearly 9 inches in height and 23 inches wide, allows wine to be poured from the widest opening in the tail through the narrower, curved neck. Each decanter, for use with a standard 750ml bottle of wine, is priced at $395.
