Loot This Witcher 3 Style Look
Decorate Witcher Style!  How to Get a Wine Carafe Like this!

 One of my favorite items is this blue ceramic wine Carafe, Decanter/ Jug.

How to Get the Vintage Look You See in Witcher 3 Wild Hunt 

The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt game by CD Projekt Red, is set in a time of long ago.  Many who play (including myself) often long to get the minimalist look of primitive days gone by.  The game series concept was originally taken from a first miniseries) turned book character, Geralt of Rivia, from Polish book author (Andrzej Sapkowski.)

Primitive Culture Comes Alive

It's not hard to recognize is the overtones in this particular Wild Hunt game - players who aren't familiar with it's Polish roots may consider this world to be that of styles of Slavic - Russian (signs, scenery) - Norse (homes, shields) -  Scandinavian - Scottish  (pottery, furniture) culture. However, it is based on Poland and it's culture.

I suffice to say the Blood and Wine Expansion highlighting primitive France no doubt. I thought it would be nice to explore how to get a look like you see in these houses in Arette , Novigrad, and Oxenfurt.   Thatched roofs and old wooden homes, crates, barrels, and wooden furniture make for easy decorating.  Today I wanted to explore the shelves, in particular, the pottery.

The Search for the Same Carafe as in Witcher 3 Wild Hunt

I searched high and low to get the same look as in the photo.  I came up with 20 ideas that would suffice to make your home look " more Witchery. " These are of course, just my own opinions and you will need to see the Disclaimer at the bottom of the page as I encourage everyone to visit CD Projekt Red and get this game (with expansion packs of course).   Note:  I am calling this a wine carafe. Who knows, could have been a milk jug!   So without further adieu,  I bring you in no particular order my top 20.  Of course none look exactly like the one in the game, but the pottery styles will turn your home into something grand.

3.  Ceramics by Pustovit out of the Ukraine had a few decanters that really hit the nail on the head resembling the sleekness of old world shapes and styles. So Scandi!  Could pass for one of the ones on the shelves in Witcher Wild Hunt.  I wouldn't mind nabbing one of their many designs, they are all handmade.
