Ship`s Carafes

North German Lloyd Bremen - Blown and partly Cut Glass Wine Ship`s Carafes, circa 1880-1910, a pair (2), made of blown and partly cut glass - Height 20 cm (8 inch), Diameter 9 cm (3 1/2 inch) - good condition, slight wear from use and slight limestone at bottom - marked under the bottom "Nordd. Lloyd Bremen" - Private Collection

Note: These Ship`s Carafes from the North German Lloyd Service (who provided mainly Transatlantic Services to Northern America) are typical pieces which were used on the Ocean Liners in the Dining Rooms. For the use today in your home it is nice to have a pair because each piece can be placed on one end of the table - such as you would do it with a pair of candle holders. In contrast to a decanter a carafe for wine do not have a stopper in order to let the (red) wine get air.
