Crystal Decanters Can Come In Clear Or Cut Glass

They can also come in leaded or unleaded.  Lead crystal glass is prized for its clarity and refractive properties, meaning that when lead crystal glasses are cut, they sparkle and shine and do a great job of refracting the light, much like a cut diamond does.

There has been quite a bit of controversy around whether drinking from lead crystal glasses is good for you or not, since they do have lead added to them and everyone knows that eating or drinking from lead utensils is not good for you. 

In the case of lead crystal, whether decanters or wine glasses, you will have to use your own judgement and make your own decisions.  But according to most sources, drinking from crystal wine glasses etc. will not harm you as lead will not leach that quickly from the glass to the beverage.  As for decanters, don't plan on storing wine or other beverages in them and you will be fine.  Again, the lead cannot leach from them that quickly.  After the meal or event, find another container to store the beverages in.

But these crystal decanters are so gorgeous, who could resist using them to serve wine?

Riedel 26-oz. Swan Swan Decanter

Riedel 26-oz. Swan Swan Decanter

Riedel's Swan decanter embodies the same natural grace of an elegant swan. A gentle curvature forms a J shape with an elongated straight neck that narrows to the eliptical lip. Wine is poured into the wider opening of the Swan's 'tail' (which forms a natural handle) then effortlessly pours into the glass from the long narrow 'neck'. Both striking and functional, the Swan decanter separates sediment from older wine, while simultaneously allowing your wine to aerate. Mouth-blown from lead crystal.
