MISS­ING STOP­PER

The Field - - Queries -

QI have re­stored a four­de­canter tan­ta­lus. One of the de­canters is miss­ing the glass stop­per. Where in the UK can I get one made?

JS, Nairobi Wilkin­son, based in Kent, of­fers an ex­ten­sive glass­make re­pair ser­vice and would be able to a new glass stop­per for the de­can­ter. Wilkin­son says that ideally it would re­quire a stop­per from one of the other de­canters

and, if pos­si­ble, the de­can­ter it­self. The lead-crys­tal glass blank is blown and moulded and then hand cut and pol­ished to match the stop­pers of the other de­canters. The stop­per is then ground and pol­ished to fit se­curely in the neck of the de­can­ter. The whole process takes ap­prox­i­mately eight to 10 weeks and prices start at £120 plus VAT.
