Interior Designer Marie Kondo-ing her life for 2020. May this item spark joy for you!

For auction:

One smoked grey crystal decanter and five glasses in Art Deco cubist style. Attributed to Josef Hoffman Wiener Werkstätte for Moser.

This absolutely stunning and rare cubist Art Deco crystal decanter and glasses set would be a showpiece for any collector of beautiful items. I purchased it in an antique shop overseas many years ago and have always loved it.

The decanter features a faceted barrel with a stunning elliptical flared collar. It is topped with a faceted conical stopper which is complemented the five glasses that are also faceted and sit on small pedestal bases. The crystal is in smoke grey, a very desirable colour for this rare item.

Please note, the decanter has a crack in the neck which is not visible when being displayed from the other side. There is also a fleabite out of the flared collar but it is very hard to see. In addition, one of the glasses has a chip from the rim. This could be polished out but if you display it in the right light it is also hard to see. I have marked these flaws in red on the photographs. There is also small amount of bloom on the inside of the decanter but this is easily cleaned using the following method.

Soak the decanter in warm water. This will loosen up and debris and soften any stains. Pour around 2cm of rice or crushed eggshells into the decanter and then add enough warm water to cover the stains. Repeat this step until all stains are lifted. Rinse and dry. Alternatively, soak using denture tablets.

Despite these flaws, the items display extremely well and for lovers of beautiful Art Deco crystal this is an awesome find.
