DECANTERS

Decanters were used extensively in the nineteenth century for the very good reason that most alcoholic beverages had a huge amount off sediment.  One of the reasons that so many drinking glasses had fluting or honeycomb patterning to the lower half of the glass was to hide the amount of sediment that had been poured into the glass.  Decanting didn't get rid of all the sediment, but it did allow for much of it to be poured off before it was served to a guest.  Decanting was required for all types of liquor including ale and champagne.
