This very unique historical liquor decanter was made in Japan, most likely by Lipper & Mann Creations. The design is reminiscent of a lantern with a horseshoe on each side and gold drizzled glass. Inside the base is a music box that, when wound and lifted to pour a drink, plays the tune "How Dry I am" which is a song written by Irving Berlin in 1919. The song is an ironic reference to the alcohol prohibition of the 1920s when the term 'dry' referred to abstinence of alcohol. Outlaws of the time would drink at Speakeasies and harmoniously sing this song ironically in opposition to the prohibition. The decanter is in good condition overall aside from the rusty areas on the metal. It is about 9.25" tall and 4.75" wide
