This unique collection of sterling silver and coloured crystal decanters is a testimony to the extraordinary design skills and craftsmanship of Theo Fennell. Beautifully sculpted skulls wearing a selection of hats, crafted in sterling silver by Theo’s brilliant silversmiths here in London, sit atop vibrantly coloured lead crystal decanters, each hand-blown in Somerset.
Each superbly modelled skull wears something different, from a Sombrero to a Fez and a Lawyer’s Wig to a Geisha’s Shimada. Some have obvious connotations for the drink they will hold: The Scottish Tam O’Shanter for whiskey, or the Cossack Papakha for vodka. Others are more skill related, The Mortar Board for someone who has just graduated, a favourite teacher or a brainy friend, or The Surgeon’s Mask for a recently qualified doctor or the sergeon that altered your life.
Wonderful presents though they are, they are also eminently collectable and, displayed together in a fabulous shimmer of colour they transform their surroundings.
