Manufacturer: Beam's Choice
Beams Choice Liquor Bottle - Charles I

Size: 8-3/4 Inches T with cap x 5-1/2 Inches W.

Condition: Good. There are small paint chips off several of the raised design & several that have tiny black marks showing through the underlaying white surface. The back upper rim of the bottle has a small paint chip with the black mark showing through - about 1/4 inch in length. This bottle has a striking picture of Charles I with horse & courier. I believe this is a print that has been put directly on the bottle. It is not a paper label but a reproduction of an original painting by Van Dyck. A scroll type design is on the back of the bottle with a picture of the head of Van Dyck - Dates of Birth & Death & a short Biography. The painting is in Very Good condition. The bottle has a textured look with a raised design bordering the picture. The bottle has the remaining of the tax stamps running from the screw on plastic cap and small remaining pieces on the back of the bottle.

The bottom of the bottle has LIQUOR BOTTLE AND SOME NUMBERS in raised lettering. Beam Bottles were made to hold Kentucky Straight Bourbon, made by the James B. Beam Distilling Co. The Beam series of ceramic bottles began in 1953.

This bottle is empty of contents.
