1971 Paul Lux Vintage Liquor Decanter Bottle St Louis Blues Hockey
Vintage figural decanter depicting a St Louis Blues hockey player, created by Paul Lux in 1971 for Colonial China and Old Blue Ribbon Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. The hockey player is standing in full uniform with ice skates and holding a hockey stick in front of him.
Originally holding 4/5 quart of 5 year old 86 proof whiskey, this pottery decanter bottle is now empty. The decanter is in great condition, with no nicks, chips or cracks. There still is a bit of paper tape residue from the Federal tax strips on the back of the decanter that you can easily wash and clean off if you wish. I've not pulled out the cork that is attached under the hockey player's helmet as I was concerned that in doing so I may inadvertently tear the cork. (As best I can tell, it appears to be fully intact.)
Decanter measures 14-5/8 inch high and a base diameter of approx. 4-3/4 inch.
