Whiskey bottle.

In the shape of Charles Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis, the airplane he piloted across the Atlantic.

Ceramic.

The propeller pulls off to reveal the cork and opening.

This replica mimics the original plane manufactured by Ryan Airlines in San Diego. Even the markings on the tail and wings are authentic - N-X-211.

Sold by McCormick Distilling Co., Weston, Missouri.

Contained Straight Bourbon Whiskey, 86 proof, one pint. (It is empty.)

Dated 1969, made and hand painted in Italy.

(Wikipedia.org has an excellent article on the actual airplane.)

The only flaw is one of the tail struts needs to be re-glued, as noted in one photo.

Free delivery in the Toledo area.

Thank you!
