- Excellent used condition. It’s super clean. There are a couple of small air bubbles in the glass -- typical of hand-blown glass like this -- and there's a tiny inclusion on the side -- it's smaller than the tip of a pencil. With light shining through the glass, you can see there's a slight production fold/mark from the mold used to form the glass. Like many pieces of handmade glass, this decanter isn’t 100% totally symmetrical; the top of it leans a bit to one side.
