More Old Kirk

Following the A.P. Hotaling Co's sale of the J.H.Cutter Agency to Sherwood and Sherwood, they offered Old Kirk Whiskey as their proprietary brand. To my knowledge, no embossed bottles were blown, so the product came in paper labeled bottles, only. Since Old Kirk was sold until the advent of prohibition, and post-earthquake and fire, many examples of their advertising survives to this day. Many of these pieces are made from brass, a metal that easily last through burial in a privy or trash pit. Below are a few of the Old Kirk items in my collection.
