Picked these figural liquor bottles up today and was wondering if anyone knew anything more about them?

McGovern is written on the bottom and they are stamped Alberta's.

Set includes:

Cowboy Bourbon, Indian fire water, Pirate rum, Russian vodka, Banker or businessman brandy, Inspector or Sherlock Holmes gin and a Bagpiper scotch.

Each stands 12" tall and have the removable cork lids and are made out of ceramic.

    Hi,
    I have the same figurines in my family. Mine were made by my grandpa back in 1967 when he took a ceramic class at the Camp Pendleton Hobby Shop. My grandma drug him there. The molds are by Alberta's Ceramic Molds ( http://www.albertas.com/rmplpg ), molds #430, 431, ect, mold cost $70.00 each. The signature on the bottom is probably the John Hancock of the Marine or dependent that made it. Ours are signed "Sam", my grandpa. He choose to paint his solid bronze. A few have broken over the years and some have been lost; now, thanks to you, I found the name of the mold company and can now purchase the molds so I can make replacements of my own. Grandpa's no longer say Alberta's. Thank you so much, I'm so happy. This means so much to me.

    I have 6 or 7 of these (cowboy, indian, banker, etc.). I was actually hoping to find a value of what they were worth. But since I just learned the molds were Alberta's, and they were made and painted (in delightful detail) by my grandmother, I suppose they aren't worth thousands, then. My grandmother owned and ran a Hobby Shop and taught ceramics to others in Montgomery,Alabama. Janiqua, did your grandfather take ceramics in Montgomery by chance? (wouldn't that be something!)
