Is this available in pink?

That particular decanter is a 6122, meaning it was the 22n'd design of the 1961 line. It was still in the catalog in 1963 and 1964, when rosé was one of the color options. The decanter was made in three sizes, small at 16.5" tall, medium at 21.5" tall, and the large at 26.75" tall. The medium version is pictured in rosé on page 34 of Leslie Piña’s book on the 1962 - 1971 catalog reproductions.

So yes, this one is available in pink, but since it is a vintage piece not curently in production, be prepared to hunt for it, and pay a premium price if the seller knows what they have.
