Item/Description: Vintage 1963 100th anniversary commemorative "Vat 69 1863-1963" black & white water pitcher/jug/ewer.
This handsome black and white rotund bar/pub/tavern water pitcher is as decorative as it is functional, with a stunning mid-century modern design that includes an attractive molded handle built right in to the jug. It is glazed both inside and out, with the exterior finish consisting of a high mirror glass finish that contrasts exquisitely with the white “Vat 69 1863-1963" lettering present on the front-facing side of the pitcher. The spout is also cleverly designed so as to trap ice cubes from falling into the drink recipient’s glass.
With such an aesthetically attractive appearance as well as its multi-purpose functionality, this delightful jug “serves” (lame pun intended) ;~) marvelously to commemorate the 100-years anniversary of Vat 69 Scotch-blended whisky (whiskey), and will further serve as a timeless and treasured barware collectible for the whiskey connoisseur in your life.
