The glass may be older, but we don't know. The glass is beautifully cut and frosted with floral and foliate designs. The underside of each bottle has a rayed starburst design cut in. The glass is unsigned, but the quality easily suggests a fine English maker like Webb.
The lid, handle and collar are sterling silver, with a leaf design on the handle and a bee finial on the lid. The decanters are in great condition. The glass has no chips, no cracks, no breaks, no discolorations, and no repairs. The silver has no splits, no dents, no monograms, no monogram removals, and no repairs. Each piece is hallmarked on the side with the lion passant for sterling silver, the leopard's head for the city of London, the date letter t for 1974, and the maker's mark for Lionel Alfred Crichton/Crichton Bros.
The lids are also hallmarked with the lion passant and the leopard's head. Each decanter stands about 11 3/4 inches tall. The total weight for the pair is 2432 grams.
