Description

A very nice old whiskey bottle -"Antique" Spiritus Frumenti, has a lovely spider web covering the bottle, blooms of wheat, on the lower front a nice spider, near the top right shoulder a fly in the web.  A nice metal looking label on the front, lower label is missing.  On the back is a partial paper label, lower label missing, both are shown in the MORE photos.  It has a metal jigger for a cap, I can make out -Paul Jones, Antique, Four Roses.  It looks like ceramic and metal on the top of the bottle, the ceramic has Frankfort Dist. on it, I have not taken this off.

I believe this is from the prohibition era and you needed a prescription.  The label on the front has -
"Antique" Spiritus Frumenti 100 Proof An Alcoholic stimulant made from the fermented mash of grain.  This label has a web in the top left corner with a wheat border.  The back label has - Whiskey "Antique" One Pint 100 Proof Bottled at the Frankfort Distillery  -can't make out the rest.  Above the labels front and back is -Non-Refillable, on the bottom is T.M. Reg. U.S. Pat. Off. 12 Pat.Pending.

This bottle is in very good condition -as described above, the metal jigger does have some denting around the top edge and light on the sides -it has paint loss as well.  Bottle with jigger on is approx.  8 1/2 inches tall and 4 inches across the front.

Any questions please ask.
