Bottle of Veuve Clicquot Ponsardian 15th anniversary Windows on the World commemorative champagne. The bottle is dark-green glass. Its printed label has the Windows on the World logo and text: "15th Anniversary | 1976-1991." The top of the bottle is unopened but its liquid has been drained through the bottom.
Dr. David Berk is a practicing dentist who graduated from NYU medical school in 1969. To celebrate the 22nd anniversary of their graduation, his class hosted a reunion at Windows on the World in 1991, which happened to overlap with the 15th anniversary of the restaurant. Berk saved a commemorative champagne bottle from Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin in its original box after attending the reunion.
