The Albrecht Durer pewter wine decanter is designed after the works of Albrecht Durer, a famous Renaissance painter and engraver who was born in Nuernberg, Germany in 1471.
There are four subject panels, each displaying some of his most well known and popular artwork in raised relief detailed pewter. Archways and portraits border each panel. The panels on this goblet feature The Knight, Death and the Devil (also known as The Rider), The knight and the Landsknecht, Fair Trade and Dancing Peasants. To learn more about what some of these panels represents and the meaning behind the artwork, please visit our page on Albrecht Durer.
The Albrecht Durer pewter wine decanter is made entirely in Germany and stands 10 inches tall. It holds 23-1/2 ounces of your favorite wine. It is made of 100% food safe pewter and comes with a quality certificate so that you’ll know you’re getting an authentic work of art and not a reproduction.
Decanting wines hours before serving gives the wine a chance to bloom. It introduces oxygen which then releases aromas and flavors and works best with young wines.
Engraving is free on this wine decanter. Please see the Engraving Information link to the left.
Engraving: Engraving on this decanter is available on your choice of the right or left side top band area. A maximum of 64 characters may be engraved on either side in two lines of text (approx. 32 characters per line per side). The side that is showing in the image is considered the right side.
You may also choose to engrave both sides of this decanter for an additional charge of just $10.00.
All engraving lines are centered unless otherwise specified. There are times we will use our own judgement and make changes to the engraving. As an example, you may request all capital letters, but the font you chose would not look well in all caps. We will never change your verbiage or font choice without contacting you first, however, we will correct punctuation and make adjustments to the layout if necessary.
The time it takes to engrave and ship your order is two weeks. This can sometimes be shorter or longer depending on the time of the season. A tracking number will be sent on the day your order ships.
