Here's a Whiskey Caddy in the shape of an old steam locomotive, with shot glasses in the stack and on the boiler, with a square glass decanter as the cab of the train.
When you pick up the bottle it triggers the wind-up music box that plays "Show me the Way to go Home", an old popular favorite

Bought.at Cherokee Strip Antiques in Enid. Arthur Durkee said he got it from a man who worked for Liberace many years as a groundskeeper. This piece was in Liberace's house for years when he ultimately gave it to the groundskeeper as a Christmas present, He then had it for years and ended up with a drinking problem and wanted to get everything related out of the house.

I have the sheet music to the song played by the caddy, given to me by Arthur some months after I bought the caddy.
