An Ox’s character can be described as calm, reliable and modest. Accordingly, the decanter’s slender form allows it to fit modestly and reliably into any fridge door and will enhance any table setting.

The most eye-catching detail of this decanter is the Chinese character on its central plate. The template for the character was created by a Chinese calligrapher, as a decorative representation of the Chinese Zodiac symbol for the Ox. This plate can also be used as a convenient handle when pouring.

Presented with a red and gold stripe down one side, the Zodiac Ox Decanter allows you to bestow good fortune, good luck, and happiness on the wine lover in your life. The glass craftspeople achieve its brilliant, coloured feature by introducing rods of coloured crystal into the molten glass before the decanter’s shape has been formed.
