I remember the first time I saw this style decanter. I thought it was soo atomic! Come to find out that they were designed by Raymond Loewy (Thanks Benjamin Cobb Storck for the info). From that point on I wanted to amass a small collection and make a custom decanter set for entertaining.
This was a straight forward and quick restoration. The good news was that the bottoms and tops separate from the bottle part which made painting them a breeze!
This is the spray paint I swear by. I purchase this paint from Michael’s crafts store. Other gold paint can look tacky, but this one looks period correct.
Another good thing about this paint is that it is quick drying. Seriously, it only took 10-15 minuets for the pieces to dry.
I found a place on eBay that makes custom decals. I thought this light pink with a gold border would compliment the gold body of the decanter. I have managed to find 7 decanters so far and am looking to get a total of 10.
As you can see, we have Vodka, Rum, Tequila, Cognac…
Whiskey, Scotch & Bourbon!
This set looks really good with the Hager smoking set.
Once I find the other 3 decanters we will be ready to party!

Bravo on your delux work of art.

Thanks Ann. We might sell some of our personal collection if it doesn’t fit in our new house. We’re not sure yet.
