Vintage R.C.M.P. Mountie Decanter 1969

This is a mint 1969 Canadian Mist Mountie Decanter .The Mountie is from the "Barton Porcelain Fine Figurine Series" and was a limited run. This rare piece is by the Barton Distillery ,Bardstown, Kentucky   

 The Mountie  stands 13.5 inches tall and the cork inside hat still seals tightly .So yes it still can be used as a decanter or just a kool decorative piece .Real  Mountie collectables are getting rarer and tougher to find since Disney managed to  STEAL  the image rights away from the  R.C.M.P.
