I believe the decanters were not imprinted with "Trader Vic's" on the bottom. At least the decanters I have seen were not marked. A few had some maker/import/liquor markings, but not "Trader Vic". The mugs however were marked.

Would bet yours is authentic and very desirable, see above. Theer are two sizes of the deacnter, but that should not affect the overall bid-ness of the piece.

And by the way, you're lucky...two at an estate sale? Arrrggghh!

Mine is 8" pint size and has a paper label on back with the Trader Vic's name and import info. The bottom is marked "illegal to reuse or resell Federal law..blah, blah" There is a made in Japan sticker on the bottom. I got mine from my parents garage still in the box. There is still a bit of brown goo rum in it!
