This old glass decanter advertises Umpire Bourbon Whiskey from The Kelly Steinmetz Liquor Co. of Minneapolis, Minnesota. The jug has an applied handle and the lettering is lightly acid etched on front along with the KSL Co. monogram. The glass is slightly sun-colored or in other words it has turned a very pale shade of purple. It comes with a cork stopper which I think is a replacement but probably what was originally used. This would be a fun way to serve your next bottle of wine.
It measures about 8" tall without the stopper and the bottom of the jug is about 3 1/3" in diameter. It is in good condition with no damage and minor. The etching has some wear and scratches as shown in the close-up photo. There is a minimal amount of water stain foxing inside but there is a water calcium ring inside the flat bottom.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
