The front of this bottle carries a scene of sailing ships in beautiful Delft blue. The opposite side has an embossed windmill.

Measuring just over 13" tall, this elegantly designed decanter carries an embossed warning on the bottom: , “FEDERAL LAW FORBIDS SALE OR REUSE OF THIS BOTTLE”. .This wording was required on all liquor bottles sold within the United States that were made between 1935 and 1964.

This phrase dates marked bottles from 1935 until 1970s. After prohibition was repealed on Dec 5, 1933 the law changed again and it became legal to manufacture and sell alcoholic beverages. The reasoning behind this law was to prevent the refilling of bottles by the black market bootlegging businesses.In 1935 the law went into effect which stated that the words "Federal law forbids sale or re-use of this bottle" must be embossed somewhere on the bottle. On Dec 1, 1964 the law was repealed. Some manufactures still were embossing their bottles into the early 1970s.
