Description

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.
