Great vintage 1968 I. W. Harper Bourbon Bowing Man decanter with original box. The bowing man, bent slightly forward and giving a casual salute with one hand and holding a cane in the other is symbolic of the company. The base of the figurine reads: I. W. HARPER in embossed, painted detail and the reverse shows a distillers stamp that reads: BOTTLED BY I. W. HARPER DISTILLING CO. LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKY 86 PROOF 4/5 QUART 150 MONTHS OLD. There is a nice US tax stamp on the top hat and the underside of the base shows a makers mark that reads: ORIGINAL MOLD MADE IN 1955 FIGURE MADE IN PORTUGAL 1968. The original box is also in nice condition showing a picture of the figurine, information about the distillery, decanter, and age of spirit.
Approximately 16 tall; Base 4 x 5-3/4 x 2; Box: 6-3/4 x 4-3/4 x 17-1/4

8+ (Excellent): The figurine shows minor wear, some paint loss beneath his chin (see photo) which does not detract, overall excellent condition.
As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
