elliptical mouth allows a perfectly drip free pour. The O Decanter is hand blown, lead crystal and

Look for Riedel O at eBay Auctions
When it comes to finding Riedel that is difficult
to find in stores near you, one of your best resources for acquiring the items you
want is eBay, where there are a lot of wonderful finds still in the
original boxes. We all receive those odd items as gifts that we have no need for and
never use. Yet, one person's junk could be exactly the treasure you want.
