  • Vintage: 1968
  • Details:  A beautiful and highly Collectible Bourbon Whiskey Decanter by Old Fitzgerald.   This is a wonderfully shaped glass bottle that has been painted white, and a transferware decoration of Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s beloved home, farm, and plantation in Charlottesville, VA added in the front.  The stopper is embossed 1849, this is the name of the bourbon whiskey once contained inside the bottle (bottle empty). The decanter retains its original green bond tax strip with all the stamps in red and the year clearly shown as 1968.  It also retains the front label, that simply reads: “Old Fitzgerald” as well as the back label that reads in part: “Monticello Decanter, Bottled in Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 100 Proof, 4/5 quart, 6 years old. Distilled and bottled by Stitzel-Weller Distillery, Louisville, Kentucky”.  Gorgeous gift for a collector, historian, or architect or anyone who admires Monticello.  Makes a wonderful decor for a bar or study.

Monticello was built by Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States, as his home, farm and plantation.  Jefferson started building in 1768, when he actually finished is debatable, as he kept making alterations and re-constructing the house.  But we know that his wife Martha Wayles Skelton joined him at Monticello in 1772.   Martha died in 1782 and Jefferson left Monticello in 1784 to serve as Minister of the United States to France. While in France he fell in love with the architecture and came back in 1794 to re-build his home yet again.  Mostly completed by 1809, we know he continued work on the house until his death in 1826.  Due to its architectural and historic significance, the property has been designated a National Historic Landmark. In 1987, Monticello and the nearby University of Virginia, also designed by Jefferson, were together designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The current nickel, a United States coin, features a depiction of Monticello on its reverse side.
