Q: I have an Elvis Presley music box decanter. It stands 14 1/2 inches tall and it still has the whiskey in it. The music box base plays "Love Me Tender" and has "Sincerely Elvis '77" on the front. A family member said it's worth a lot. Can you tell me its value?

A: Your decanter is one of the "Portrait of Elvis" series from the Americana Porcelain by McCormick Collection. This series of five decanters was made between 1977 and 1980. They show Elvis at different points in his career. The figural decanters are hand-painted Japanese porcelain and contain McCormick Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. They are mounted on music box bases which play songs made famous by Elvis.

Your decanter is the first in the "Portrait of Elvis" series. It pictures Elvis just before his death in 1977. It sells for $5 to $35 depending on condition, whether or not the whiskey is still in the unopened bottle, and whether or not it has its original box.
