"Well, show me the way to the next whiskey bar, oh, don't ask why..."
The Alabama Song (English) was written for Bertolt Brecht in the 1927 Kurt Weill play "Little Mahogonny," but most know it as the song popularized by Jim Morrison and David Bowie. It was brought to mind when I came upon this terrific gold whiskey bottle.
The dimensional miniature has the word "WHISKY" engraved on the front between rows of tiny raised stars. Just so there is no confusion, It isn't a spelling mistake: Ireland and the U.S. use the spelling "whiskey," while Scotland, Canada, and just about everywhere else in the world use "whisky." If you have a friend who loves whiskey, it would make a great gift because it has never been worn!
Made from 10K yellow gold, it measures 1" tall by almost 1/2" across by 1/4" deep. Weight is 3.2 grams. The top of the bottle does not unscrew. There is a sizeable jump ring added to the top stamped "10K" with maker's mark, through which you can add a chain or attach to a charm bracelet.
Excellent condition, with very slight signs of wear. Dates to the 1970's.
