Here comes the weekend and something really beautiful, a Otard Extra Crystal Decanter that one of our readers from Malaysia sent us.

He tells us that “This was also from my grandfather’s collection, recently passed down to me. I asked him about it once and he said he won it at one of his corporate party things, and said it was pretty valuable. He didn’t say how valuable, though, then he died. So besides some vague information I’ve managed to glean from the internet, there’s was really very little I could find out about it.”

(If you also have a Cognac bottle you would like to sell, or you need information about age or value – send us photos and information, just submit: Use this form – but please be aware: if you don’t follow the steps precisely, we will not publish your bottle.)

Otard Extra Crystal DecanterBottle, with box

The label reads:
Cognac Otard au Chateau de Cognac

70cl 40% vol.
Product of France

(There wasn’t really a label on the bottle, or at least, I couldn’t find one, so here’s the description from the brass plate I found in the box)

The oldest Otard Cognac, enjoying the privilege of being reared in the “Paradise” storehouse at Cognac. Here, 50 years of evaporation develop the maximum maturity that can be expected of a Cognac. To a conoisseur, it is virtually a museum piece.

Tax labels, revenue, signs or similar: No.

    I bought one of these a few years ago for 550EU, very nicely designed bottle compared to otard’s current design…
    the most i would offer is about 600 ~ 700$ but sadly financial problems force me to hold off for now
