Wheaton Presidential Decanter

SKU E11128

In 1967 Wheaton Glass, a division of Wheaton Industries, began to produce commemorative decanters, flasks, and bottles. The Wheaton Presidential Decanter was created after the death of President Kennedy as a monument in glass to the fallen young leader. So well received was this exquisite decanter that a continuing series of Presidential Decanters was launched, and at six-month intervals new editions, similar to the JFK were issued. They all share the Boston watch fob design and have iridescent highlights.

The production of each Presidential Decanter was purposely limited so that special care could be exercised and so that these creations could be true tributes of a continually increasing value. They are truly high quality American made glass from Wheaton/Nuline in Millville, New Jersey. The last of the series was President Nixon. These bottles originally retailed for five dollars in the early 1970's.

This special limited edition Dwight David Eisenhower Decanter was issued upon the occasion of his death to commemorate his abundant life of dedicated service to his country. On the front it has a profile of the Eisenhower in his Army uniform surrounded by the text: “Oct. 14, 1890 Dwight ‘Ike’ Eisenhower Mar. 28,1969”. On the reverse is the text: … his greatest conquest…the hearts of the American people. Dwight David Eisenhower 34th President of the U.S. 1953-1961. Comes in the original Wheaton/Nuline packaging.
