Bottles & Decanters

I was cruising Craigslist last week and came across a post for these bottles.  Main interest was the Old Fitz 1/2 Gallon with the rack but it was a package deal.  Even more impressive was that the boxes were still around for the Johnnie Walker and the Stitzel Weller with the SW being in the best shape.  The SW was distilled in 1958 and bottled in 1965. They have tax stickers on them from Maryland or Virginia as well.  

 

I had one of the SW gallon bottles in the wood rack many years ago and have been looking for a few years now to get a replacement.  Pretty stoked

Interesting stuff for sure, Hop!    What are those two 'picture bottles'?

They are Beam's Choice. One is Mardi Gras and the other is Ring-Neck Pheasant by James Lockhart

The Johnnie Walker has a nameplate on the stand "Robert B Anderson"

I think some may not know; the bottle swings on a cradle, to make a big bottle easy to pour.

How about a nice picture of the Mardi-Gras bottle?

I have a collection of stuff like this too. :)

Nice! The boxes are REALLY Nice! Harder to find than the bottles. I passed on one of those OF years ago, simply because I just don't have the room to display it.

Ran across these at a flea market today in SW Florida. Didn't buy anything since I'm here on vacation. The St. Louis one was interesting because that's where I'm from. Also thought the J.W. Dant and the I.W. Harper were cool. The lady tried to convince me that the mysterious pink liquid in the VO decanter was the original whiskey and that whiskey never goes bad, especially in decanters.

Doesn't look like thus topic gets much action.  Saw a bunch more old decanters today.  Most were JB but there were JW Dant, Old Fitz, Old Governor, etc. There were several JB commerating the Honorable Order Of The Blue Goose. Pics are only about 1/3 of them. None with liquid.
