HUNTER DISTILLERY

BAR STATUE

"HUNTER FIRST OVER THE BAR"

1940s

Vintage 1940'S LARGE PATINATED BRONZE BAR DISPLAY. THE WORDS "HUNTER FIRST OVER THE BARS" APPEAR ALONG ONE SIDE OF THE BASE. ON ONE END OF THE BASE IS WRITTEN "HUNTER-WILSON DISTILLING CO. INC." AND ON THE OTHER END IS NOTED "FINE BLENDED WHISKEY 86 PROOF 65% GRAIN SPIRITS". SEAGRAMS ACQUIRED THE HUNTER AND WILSON BRAND IN 1941 AND RELOCATED ITS RYE WHISKEY OPERATION FROM BALTIMORE TO LOUISVILLE , KENTUCKY .

THE PIECE IS 15" LONG, 13 3/4" HIGH AND 7 1/2" WIDE. IT WEIGHS 7 1/4 LBS.. THE HORSE PIVOTS SLIGHTLY AT THE BASE AND THE RIDER'S RIGHT ARM PIVIOTS LIKEWISE AT THE SHOULDER. ASIDE FROM THE SEAMED CONSTRUCTION, THE DETAIL AND WONDERFUL PATINA OF THE HORSE AND RIDER HAVE THE APPERANCE OF A FINE BRONZE. THE CONDITION OF THIS BAR DISPLAY IS EXCELLENT AND IS 100% ORIGINAL - BUT THE HOOF ON THE LEFT LEG (SEE LAST PICTURE) IS BROKEN OFF. IT'S DIFFICULT TO NOTICE BECAUSE THE LEGS BLEND IN (SEE SIDE VIEW PICTURE). NO SCRATCHES, REPAIRS OR BLEMISHES OTHERWISE. i WIPED IT CLEAN BUT CHOSE NOT TO POLISH IT. i'LL LEAVE THAT TO THE DISCRETION OF THE BUYER.
