The liquor decanter is shaped into the likeness of Springfield, Illinois's Old State Capitol. It is opaque and painted in hues of brown and cream. On the decanter's front left, a sticker appears featuring the building's name. Another sticker on the front right has been partially removed. At the object's back, a tax label is affixed. The decanter is missing its top, which is made into the likeness of the Capitol's dome. Documentary information is embossed at the decanter's base.
