Bar bling is the thing in this decorative lot of (18) different multi-sport/non-sport whiskey decanters. Crafted as receptacles for fine sippin’ spirits this vintage 1964-85 collection finds after-life as “man-cave” memorabilia. Head barmen are: 1981 McCormick Muhammad Ali and 1985 Beam Cubs mascot, both like-new in original boxes. (4) 1974 Lionstone: high grade pieces show realistic details in full contact scenes with baseball play at the plate; boxing fighters clinch; football tackle; hockey battle for the puck. More on our website.
All of the offered decanters display in very appealing condition. Several have broken corks including the Lionstone hockey piece listed above, any others are noted below. Those with broken corks could easily have their caps attached by means of adhesive. The balance of this collection is as follows:

In addition to (18) decanters this lot also includes a Wildcats bank from an unknown Savings & Loan Assn. in New Castle, PA., the name of the S&A was printed on the reverse however the lettering is too worn to decipher. This ferocious feline head bank is the only piece in the lot to show more than trace amounts of wear and is included in addition to the (18) decanters listed above.
