Decanter #5719 in Charcoal, designed by Wayne Husted in 1957, made for 2 years only.

In 1956 Husted introduced the original mushroom decanter, the same shape as the one here except only 14 inches tall. Aparently that was just not enough of a good thing and and so the next year the scale was significantly enlarged to emphasize its sculptural qualities. Sure enough, the larger version represents a significant improvement; the design works best standing alone and in the smaller size it lacked the presence that the larger version so easily commands.

Measures 19.75 inches tall x 9 inches diameter.
