This is a vintage whiskey decanter (or wine — or anything!). It's clear glass with a distressed gold design — only age could give it such a beautiful, vintage effect. The gold design in both the bulb of the decanter and the stopper is worn in a really lovely way.
This would be a wonderful present for someone you love (who also loves decanting their favorite drink — whether whiskey or water) into a beautiful decanter. Definitely a more beautiful way to live!
