Cruciform decanters were never stoppered with glass they were corked. They may also have been intended for sparkling wines and cider. The latter may undergo a secondary malolactic fermentation in the bottle to yield some effervescence. This may account for the thick glass and sturdy nature of cruciform decanters. The string ring on a cruciform in the context of sparkling wines is therefore analgous to those found on wine bottles a device to which string could be bound in order to restrain a cork. This is the tallest example we have seen by some considerable margin

This is a varient of the cruciform, typical examples would have fewer, but more pronounced, moulded sections.
