    Description

    Spirit of St. Louis Novelty Art Deco Decanter. Charles Lindbergh's solo nonstop transatlantic flight in 1927 ignited a cottage industry of "Lucky Lindy" themed souvenirs - some useful, some not. This Spirit of St. Louis glass decanter qualifies for the former. Measuring 14" in length, this representation of Lindbergh's plane is constructed of Czechoslovakian green glass with matching glass stopper. The glass decanter is adorned with gilt rules and "Spirit of St. Louis" on the nose of the "plane" in gilt as well. Two plated-metal bands at the midsection provide support for the wire wings that cleverly serve as holders for the matching gilt-rimmed glass shot glasses. The decanter is set on plated metal wheels and tail skid. A metal spigot on the tail and a propeller on the nose complete this wonderful historic novelty. The decanter retains five of the original six shot glasses, one of which is cracked and repaired, else it is in near fine condition.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
