ARTIFACT: This is a great circa 1940s papier mache advertising figure for Old Crow brand bourbon whiskey. Dr. James C. Crow, a Scotsman by birth, is the “Crow” behind the famous name: he started distilling whiskey in Frankfort, Kentucky starting in the 1830s. The crow figure is wearing a top hat and spats and is carrying a cane tucked beneath one wing. He is also sporting a rare orange vest: red are far more commonly found.

VINTAGE: Circa 1940s.

SIZE: Approximately 11-1/4” in height; base is 3-1/4” by 4-1/4”.

CONSTRUCTION/MATERIALS: Painted papier mache.

ATTACHMENT: None.

MARKINGS: BRAND KENTUCKY WHISKIES The Old (…probably distillery name…) Frankfort, Ky. label on base.

ITEM NOTES: This is from a liquor advertising collection that we will be listing more of over the next few months. ebay SHOP MBEX07 LHEX12/13 SLFJX6/14 SLIEX8/15 SeACJX9/15

CONDITION: 7 (Very Fine): The figure has some small spots of wear, like at the end of his tail feathers; some of the original label on the base remains and nearly all of the original paint remains intact.

GUARANTEE: As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
