    This is glass decanter w/metal tray & pump action dispenser. 6 shot glasses fit on tray - there is 1 missing. There are 2 of each color-red, clear, blue & gold. A red is missing. I believe this works as a siphon works. Pump the red top & fill shot glass. I remember being fascinated by it as a kid, playing with it @ Grandmother's home-take it apart & then couldn't get it back together. Had to be 65+ years ago, so know it is @ least that old. There are no markings on bottle, tray or chrome neck that I can see that might indicate maker. It stands about 13 inches high. I suspect these might have been common in 1930s-1940s, but don't know for sure. Any info appreciated.

      Never seen one before, but this is what every party needs, glasses, decanter, and bar all in one. How cool is that. I hope you use it.

      I played w/this empty in mid to late 1940's, than wished I had it filled in 1960's seeing it @ Grandmother's home & now I just admire it in my china cabinet :) I do need to fill it & try it out! Thanks Lovecanters & Stillwater.

      My daughter has one almost like it. Her decanter is slightly bigger and the tray around it has holes to hold the shot glasses. Unfortunately I have no idea as to maker or age, or even value. She found it in a resale shop in KY. It was a great find and great price.
