Friends of mine will not be surprised to see this decanter in my shop, as for sometime now I've had an odd love-hate relationship with the humble moustache. The moustache on this piece is far from humble though!
I believe this piece was designed by La Gardo Tackett, a California-based ceramics designer who produced a modernist utilitarian ware line for Schmid International in the late 1950s/early 1960s. His work is highly sought after today.
