Default Help identifying JW Whiskey Decanter

Hello,

This is my first time posting, I've been looking for information for these for a few weeks and only seem to be finding small snippets of info.

I came across these (I have 2, they're identical) at an estate sale and figured they'd be a good buy since they were Johnnie Walker. I'm guessing they're the ones made in the 30s since they're ceramic. The others ones I've seen have a separate topper - the hats on these are the topper.

Any information would be much appreciated!

Default Johhnie Walker

Our contact at Johnnie Walker's parent company gave us this information:

These decanters were produced exclusively for the Australian market by John Walker & Sons. The first version was produced in the 1940s and were called “Old Master” whereas the second version was produced in the 1960s and were called “New Master”. The main difference was the materials used to make them, the earlier version was made of robust plaster whilst the later version was a lighter plastic. From the images, I think yours is one of the earlier versions.
