African Big 5 Decanter Set
Designed by Wildlife Artist Franz Marktl
We've selected the elephant medallion for the decanter and an image of the lion, rhinoceros, cape buffalo and leopard for each of the double old fashioned glasses. These "Big Five" are considered Africa's most dangerous animals. Sure to make an impressive statement in your study or office.
The medallions are "Fine Pewter", a mixture of over 90% tin with antimony or bismuth. Unlike antique and lower quality modern pewter, there is no lead used in this material. It is, therefore, perfectly safe for use with food. The medallion artist, Master Engraver and Wildlife Artist Franz Marktl, came to the United States from Austria over thirty years ago. Even then his engraving was highly sought after the world over. Each master engraving begins with a detailed drawing that is then transferred onto a thick sheet of sterling silver. The artist uses handmade tools to remove bits of metal, sculpting every detail. A special mold is then made at the Heritage Pewter foundry to faithfully reproduce the intricacy of the engraving. The Decanter holds 24 oz. Each glass holds 12 oz.
