The name on the bottle appears to be acid etched onto it. I would assume the pourer/stopper is also original to the bottle too as its a perfect fit. The cork is dried up, but still most of it is still t I put a blacklight to the glass and it glows yellow/green indicating it as being very old. The glass bottle itself without the pourer stands 8-1/2" tall. 's whats etched on the front: GROMMES & ULLRICH National Club BOURBON Chicago. The glass has no damage, that means no chips or cracks! The acid etching has obvious wear which you would expect on a bottle this old. The glass needs to be cleaned on the inside of the bottle.
