DISTILLER : J.J. MELCHERS

MELCHERS " MAN "

   TRADEMARK : STANDING MAN
   CIRCA : 1880



COSMOPOLIET

" Man of the World or World Traveller "

The Standing Man gin bottle is a favourite among collectors, with many variations available, featuring the man with different hats, facial features, walking canes and clothes. Earlier varieties have distinctive bevelled corners on the base.

Most examples are around 10.5 inches in height, scaling down to 8.75 inches - I have heard rumours of a 7 inch high example, which would be a fantastic acquisition for a dedicated Man gin collector.
