Look!: Mid-Century Beverage Decanters

A stop in a small antiques shop in Litchfield, MN unearthed these ceramic decanters. No other search has produced one since.

The proprietor gave us the particulars: mid-century ceramics used primarily to serve coffee and tea. The broad, slightly scandi wooden handles are attached with metal bands and screws. These two were the last survivors of an estate collection owned by a little old lady whose name probably ended in -son.

Unmarked but for a three-digit number, the maker was unknown. We loved the shape, colors and the juxtaposition of cheerful ceramic with the raw-ish metal and sturdy, grip-welcoming wood.

Anyone know anything about these?
