Vintage Dug's Whorehouse Nevada Brothel Decanters COMPLETE Set 46+3 READ DETAILS

This in an incredibly rare opportunity to purchase a COMPLETE collection of all 46 Nevada Brothel decanters from Dug Picking and his West Indies Restaurant. If you are not familiar with this collectible series, it is worth looking it up. I have not been able to find any record of a complete collection have been sold. Ever.

These miniature decanters (I think 2 oz) were made in numbers as few 700 ranging to only 1,500. Dates range from the mid/late 1970s thru the early 1990s. This means each Brothel decanter is a limited edition and at least 30 years old. Almost all of the decanters have a map to the brothel on the back. There is an assortment of empty and some still with contents. Due to age, I would not advise using any of the contents. 

Two additional Dug's decanters are included in this collection, Arizona Charlie's and Julia Bulette. There are 10 decanters that do not have their original boxes. The remaining 39 decanters have their original boxes (nothing fancy). I do not see any damage to any of the ceramics. There are 2 where the cork has dried out and broke and 2 where the cork dried, expanded and does not fit in the decanter neck. 1 decanter has leaked its contents during storage. This is #1 from 1976 in the collection, as such, I have not cleaned this as to not disturb anything. There is 1 duplicate in this collection which replaces one of the dried cork decanters.

Due to the size, weight, value of this collection, I will be overpacking and shipping in an oversized heavy-duty box with shipping insurance.

I will include a couple of books to the winning buyer. 
  1. The Legend of Julia Bulette and The Red Light Ladies of Nevada
  2. The Official Guide to the Best Cat Houses in Nevada

Please see pictures for details. 1st picture in gallery is an old photo from Dug's Decanters website circa 2011 showing the complete collection.
