About Annabel Rathbone
Annabel Rathbone read Classics and Moral Sciences at New Hall from 1954 to 1957. She now lives in Richmond, Surrey where she works as a self-employed diamond-point glass engraver. The decanter shows a unicorn standing upright on a hillock of tiny flowers, with another unicorn on the stopper. It is a very typical specimen of Rathbone's work.
