Tiffany & Co Seagram 1776 Bicentennial Decanter Sealed

SOTHEBY'S OF CHICAGO appraised this decanter for me in 1999. Value up to $200. They said the decanter pattern is a copy of glass made in Sandwich Massachusetts during the American Revolutionary era, the late 1700's. It was the first glass in America not made in Ireland. Interesting!
The 5 photos show the supremely fine condition of this 31 year old commemorative. The last photo of the hang tag reads the story behind the partnership of Seagram and Tiffany & Co. The bottle and label are in mint condition. The tag is excellent also with expected yellowing but no creases. The bottle is 11" tall, sealed, never opened, and the tax stamp is intact, with only one small 1/4" tear. The bottom of the bottle is embossed "SEAGRAMS 1776 DECANTER DESIGNED BY TIFFANY & CO. The Tiffany blue felt bag is in excellent condition. So is the box, considering its 31 years. The lid is worn at the edges and has a small hole in one corner from w a bow was stuck. The 8 corners of the box have worn through the blue, but overall excellent for its age.
