Our hand crafted decanters and carafes are perfect for casual entertaining and everyday use. Carafes are a classic way to serve water, juice, lemonade or iced tea for a group of people. Each Ravenscroft lead-free crystal water carafe and water cup is hand blown by old world European craftsmen and produced from ancient mineral deposits free of impurities. Using such pure raw materials eliminates the need to add lead content in order to produce brilliant crystal. Our lead-free crystal wine decanters from Ravenscroft Crystal and Peugeot are hand crafted in Europe and have always played a significant role in the serving of wine. Decanting allows the wine to separate from its sediment during the transfer process. Decanting also allows the wine to breathe for smoothing harsher aspects before serving.
