A CENTURY-old decanter shaped as a pheasant is expected to fetch around £3,000 when it goes under the hammer next month. 

The 110-year-old silver decanter is estimated to be sold at the Charterhouse auction in Sherborne for between £2,800 and £3,200. 

Auctioneer Richard Bromwell said: “It’s the perfect accessory for pouring your favourite tipple out of for friends and family. 

“Alternatively, it makes a wonderful table centrepiece when not in use.” 

The pheasant decanter is just one of hundreds of lots of silver, jewellery, watches, antiques and interiors along with a rare 1950s vintage Berkeley Delight caravan. 

Auctioneers say the caravan would be “perfect for guest accommodation, glamping or use as an office” on the driveway or back garden. 

Charterhouse is now accepting entries for its summer auctions of classic bikes, cars, coins, medals, stamps, collectors' items and automobilia.
