T his is a vintage Sake bottle decanter with a 6 3/4 skeleton or grim reaper with Poison written on the front of his cloak. He comes with five shot glasses in the shape of a skull – each with a slightly different look. All are marked on the bottom with Shofu made in Japan. I’m guessing they’re from the 1950’s or 1960’s. It’s kind of hard to see from the front, but if you look from the side, he is holding a finger up in front of his face pointing up. On the edge of his collar, there is one tiny flake/chip off the edge of the collar – if you look at the close up – it’s the 1/8 square piece. The other light spots around it is just the color of the glaze. One of the shot glasses has a hairline on the back. I’ve taken a photo of it for you. Other than that, its in good condition.
