Michael Graves Wine Decanter in handblown glass with blue bird aerator


Wine decanter in handblown glass, 2013, by Michael Graves for J.C. Penney. It is a new, unused piece, out of production. Decanter: 12 x 6 inches.

A remarkably delicate and clever design. The poetic glass blue bird serves as an aerator for the wine.

The cross shaped acacia wood foot recalls the Swid Powell coffee set. A stylistic signature that makes a pleasing come back with this decanter.

Other recurring figure across Michael Graves' career, the blue glass bird looks alike the birds of the Alessi wall clock, another iconic landmark design of Michael Graves career.

A masterpiece for an epicurean or Michael Graves admirer.
