|THERE ARE 4 PIECES IN THE SET. |
To find a decanter is a difficult task but to find one with the stopper is almost impossible because there were 26 officers and 357 sailors
so only 26 officers and the Imperial family used the same dinner service.
1 person needs 6 different plates and the Family is on board so there were180 plates but how many glasses were needed, definitely much less so probably 90 and probably 20 or fewer decanters were in use.
So how many decanters survived the Revolution, Civil War, WW II, and other calamities?
Nicholas II himself was drinking vodka from this glass because there were about 26 officers who drunk from the Glass service and Nicholas II was always among them dining while traveling aboard.
This vodka glass is from a well known Imperial Yacht Standart which was built in 1895 in Copenhagen, Dutch by order of Alexander III and was intended for his own use and should be finished on his birthday 26 February 1895, but he didn't live that long.
In used but very good condition, no cracks or hairlines.
And every piece is many times heavier than similarly made for use on land because the ship is rocking in seas and the light piece s would fly all over the saleroom.
So this class is very thick and has longer bottoms.
Shipping, Handling & Insurance are additional.
