My father-in-law gave me a gift when they got here.
It’s the coolest thing ever…. a bottle of Gilbey’s “Spey Royal” scotch. It’s quite old (we’re not exactly sure, but the stamp from the liqueur control board seems to say that it was sealed on October 2nd, 1930). It has never been opened.
The box states that it’s “The Dancing Scott Music Decanter”. There’s a wind up key under the base, and when you turn a knob on the side, it plays music (when irish eyes are smiling) and the little Scott figure in the bubble at the bottom of the bottle dances around.Very damn cool!!
Here are a few pictures:
I know they’re not the greatest pictures, but they give you the general idea. I’m not a collector but it seems that something like this might be worth a dollar or two. Does anyone have any idea on this?
I did the google thing and found a couple of references, but nothing major. I’m all kinds of curious.
