This great whiskey decanter bottle was made by Jim Beam in the shape of the Old Ford Automobile, to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Jewel Tea Company. The car is 7.5" tall by 11" wide, made of diecast metal and plastic wheels. It looks like a delivery truck for Jewel Tea, and has that painted on the windows.

The body is pottery with beautiful brown glazing and gold detailing. The Jewel Tea company was established in 1899, so this bottle is from 1974. I checked, and unfortunately, t is no whiskey in the bottle anymore....

The Jewel Tea company is well known for its beautiful Autumn patterned china, as well as their many other patterns. This is from the estate of a decanter collector, who had tons of great collectible bottles. This piece is in great shape as it has been in a cabinet since it was new.

Now for the boring parts: I do my very best to describe things accurately, and feel that I am very conservative in my descriptions of condition. I value my feedback and try to do a great job with my auctions. Please ask questions prior to the end of the auction, as once the auction closes, it is obviously too late. I pack very very very well, but cannot be responsible for what the post office does to your treasures once they leave my hands. so insurance is clearly recommended! (I have had really great luck with shipping, though, knock wood...). I sell primarily antiques, and do not accept returns. Antiques are obviously not new items, and will not be in new condition, though again, I try to describe any damage to the best of my ability.

I take credit cards and checks through Pay Pal. Feel free to send checks or money orders for payment, though I do wait until the checks clear before I ship your items. I work full time and usually ship the Saturday after the auction ends. I'm happy to combine shipping for multiple auctions. If you are bidding on more than one item and I send you an invoice prior to the end of the last item, the invoice does not include postage for more than 1 lot--eBay does not let me know that you are still bidding. I usually only ship to Canada and sometimes England, depending on how large or fragile the package will be. Any foreign packages must be paid for with Pay Pal. I learned recently that my bank charges very high fees to process foreign money orders, even if they are in US dollars!
