The porcelain decanter was produced for McCormick Straight Bourbon Whiskey. It has been shaped in the form of a young Abraham Lincoln, who stands in front of a table holding a law book. His hat and coat rest on the table, and a dog sits at his feet. A piece of U.S. Internal Revenue tape runs down the decanter's back, and a gold informational label is located at its base.
