Thank you very much for your question. I've pasted below a web address and the information from it: http://www.dudley.gov.uk/leisure-and-culture/museums--galleries/glass-museum/reference/caring-for-your-glass How do you release a stuck stopper? Hold the decanter between your knees with the stopper away from you and tap the stopper gently but repeatedly with a piece of wood (the back of an old fashioned shoe brush is ideal). The slight shock should release the stopper. Wrap a piece of hot wet cloth round the neck of the decanter. The theory is that this will cause the glass to expand and thus release the stopper. Warning - the most common cause of stuck stoppers is Sherry as it can be sticky and sugary, so make sure that decanters with Sherry in are kept clean.
