INSIDE & OUT : Decantations

November 11, 1995|CYNDI Y. NIGHTENGALE

Pour it on in style with crystal decanters by Royal Copenhagen.

Handblown with stoppers in rose, sapphire and aquamarine, Royal Copenhagen's four decanters are an ideal way to serve your favorite spirits--or ice tea.

Architects Lone Piiters Ostenfeldt and Johnny Hansen drew inspiration for the lead-free crystal decanters from buildings in Copenhagen. The two short bottles draw their lines from St. Nicholas and Our Savior churches. The taller ones depict the stock exchange building and Christians' Church.

The pieces, introduced this fall as the Skyline collection, sell for about $160 each. For the nearest dealer, call (800) 546-5253.

TV Taz

When you're through channel surfing, give the Tasmanian Devil remote-control holder a whirl.

Perched in his own armchair, the stuffed Taz appears primed to have a devil of a good time resting on your armchair.

The holder ($24) is made of weighted canvas with two pockets for surfing gear.

It is available at the Warner Bros. Studio stores at the Brea Mall and South Coast Plaza or by calling (800) 223-6524.


Put a little gleam and glimmer into your holidays with Christmas tree ornaments by renowned jewelry designer Ray Tracey.

Tracey, born and raised on a Navajo reservation in Arizona, reinterprets traditional Native American symbols and motifs, such as Kokopelli, the spirit that represents abundance, on gold- and silver-tone tree ornaments.

Other symbols include those signifying healing and long life. The ornaments, about $20 each, are five inches long.

Tracey, whose studio is in Gallup, N.M., has been making jewelry since he was 9 years old and has been working professionally since 1977. Known for traditional old-style Navajo designs, Tracey's modern creations are also highly acclaimed.

Tracey's ornaments are available at Zia Jewelry, Capistrano Plaza, 31761 Camino Capistrano in San Juan Capistrano, (714) 493-1322.
