A license issued under this chapter shall be purely a personal privilege, good for one year, unless sooner revoked as in this chapter authorized and provided, and shall not constitute property nor shall it be subject to attachment, garnishment or execution, nor shall it be alienable or transferable, voluntarily or involuntarily, or subject to being encumbered or hypothecated. Such license shall not descend by the laws of testate or intestate devolution, but it shall cease upon the death of the licensee; provided that, executors and administrators of any estate of the deceased licensee, and the trustees of any insolvent or bankrupt licensee, when such estate consists in part of alcoholic liquor, may continue the business of the sale of alcoholic liquor under the order of the court having jurisdiction of such estate and may exercise the privileges of such deceased, insolvent or bankrupt licensee, after the death of such decedent, or such insolvency or bankruptcy, until the expiration of such license, but not longer than six months after the death, bankruptcy or insolvency of such licensee.
