This is a VINTAGE TUONI & CANEPA TUACA DEMI SEC LIQUEUR DECORATIVE 1 GALLON BOTTLE. The item is 26" tall. Has 3 brass fish for feet and a brass top. All labels are in place and in great shape. The front label says 84 proof which is a higher proof than most Tuaca labels say. Produced and bottled by TUONI & CANEPA, Livorno ITALY. I find no dates on this item. Calvert Distillers Company, sole importers for USA, New York, NY. The bottle itself reads in raised letters "Federal law forbids sale or re-use of this bottle". T is no cork or lid on the bottle except the decorative lid you see in the pictures. Doesn't actually appear like it had any kind of lid because you can still see a tape ring around the bottom part of the decorative lid, like it was only sealed in that way. T is NO damage of any kind. Item is in EXCELLENT shape! My guess would be that this was used as a party or sales presentation but I honestly know nothing about such things. I emailed Tuaca hoping to find out a possible date of the item but they never answered so I just decided to go ahead and list it and let ebayers tell me what it is worth........ The item weighs 9.5 pounds. The glass is very thick. The "tap" doesn't seem to want to turn but it appears to be a real tap because the spiggot has a hole and t is a hole on the inside of the bottle with a metal nut on it so I don't think the tap was put t just for looks. The fish feet each has a felt pad so the bottle will not scratch your furniture. Wish I knew more about this item so I could tell it but I do not. Check out the pictures and judge it for yourself. Thanks!Listing more so please check out my other items.....I DO COMBINE SHIPPING IF YOU WIN MORE THAN 1 OF MY AUCTIONS! If you have an aversion to cigarette smoke then please look for ads that state "non-smoking" household because I do smoke. Thanks
