The Kaltern crystal wine decanter features a grape theme and is done in a combination of hand-crafted pewter and fine Bohemian crystal. The base on this wine decanter is highly polished pewter as well as the neck and handle area. In the front is an image of grapes in high relief pewter. The opening on this decanter has a pewter lid which can be opened and closed by using a thumb lift.
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: Free engraving on this decanter is available on your choice of the right side (shown) or left side glass area and includes two lines of text of up to 64 characters total.
Additional engraving may be done on each side at a cost of just $10 per area with a maximum character limit of 64 per area.
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.
Need By Date:
We ask for this so that we can be sure that we do not miss an important date or event. We review your need by date and the shipping method you choose. In some instances, we may need to contact you and upgrade your shipping method or process on a rush basis so that you receive your item in time.
If you need your order sooner than two weeks, you can choose the option to rush your order. We also ask for the date you need your order by and we take that into account when you choose to rush your order. We will contact you if necessary.
How to Provide Us with Additional Engraving Instructions:
You are able to provide additional information and engraving instructions when you go through the check-out process. Please enter any information pertaining to your engraving in the “order notes” field which is found on the same page where you enter in your billing and shipping details.
Color fill is a process in which we fill in the engraved lettering with a permanent silver or gold paint to enhance the appearance. It is available on glass and ceramic surfaces only.
For example, if you are purchasing an item for a 50th Wedding Anniversary, you may choose to have gold color fill. Or if you are purchasing an item with a metal base and glass flute, you may choose to color fill the letters to match the color of the metal. Overall, it will enhance the appearance of your item, making the text more visible and easier to read. The below examples are from left to right: gold fill and silver fill.
We offer eight different fonts to choose from including Chancery, Lucida, Corsiva, Champagne, Times, Script MT, Old English and Engravers. If you have a special font consideration, please contact us as we can usually engrave in other font styles as well. Please see below for samples of the fonts we currently offer.
