Riedel Decanters

From Coolhunting

These are pretty cool. I've been tempted to get the swan like one for Dad a few times now. But the price tag has always stopped me...

"New from the generations-old family glassware-makers Riedel, this series of decanters takes its inspiration from birds for a collection that's as striking as it is functional. Designed by Maximillian Riedel (also responsible for leading the stemless revolution) and his father Georg and handmade by artisans in their Austrian factory, the leaded crystal vessels are all aerodynamic lines and dramatic dimensions.

While the Swan (above right) and Paloma (top) feature sloping tails that double as handles and a curved neck serves as a drip-free spout, the Flamingo (above left) takes a cue from a traditional wine bottle. A deep indent in the bottom for the thumb provides stability with which to pour wine out of the nearly two-foot tall decanter. Each holds a bottle of wine and all are limited in quantity."

You can buy them on Amazon.

Could you do a "Buy a decanter inspired by brand x promotion that comes with a complimentary bottle"?
