    Help me put a name with the face - Federal Law, whiskey(?)

    I love the picture on this one, but I don't know anything about it. Picked up from redneckest antique shop ever. Whose picture is this? I have a feeling it is an ex-President, but I can't tell. Can I get a brand and possibly as value on this one?

    Thanks,
    Isaac

    Isaac,

    It has taken nearly a year on this site before I could answer a question instead of ask one.

    I think the gentleman on the bottle is Harry Wilken. I found a screwtop bottle (with cap) last year with the same design. I went and pulled it out and the name is embossed across the bottom of the back.

    Thanks HJ, I didn't take a picture of the heel of the bottle because its too hard to read, but it is indeed embossed with several names, one of which looks like Harry E. Wilken, Jr.

    Actually, now that I know it says Wilken, the other names which follow Harry are:
    Harry Wilken, Sr.
    William T.(?) Wilken

    All of them appear to be in script, and whats more the script differs from name to name. I presume that this was based on actual signatures, which makes them that much cooler. I didn't think about connecting that with the face, maybe I should have.

    Brand was, apparently, The Wilken Family Blended Whiskey. Thanks again HJ

    Isaac

    That bottle is nice, but not quite as nice as the bludwine behind it in the first photo. Do you have any info on it, it's purty!
