Featured is an early round metal serving tray from the California Brewing Association in Napa, CA for the Golden Ribbon Beer Brand. This tray features a woman galloping through the desert on a horse, a very unusual design, and to my knowledge, not a stock style tray. Circa 1910, Pre-Prohibition era.Details
EMS Brewing Co, Cardboad Beer Sign, E. St. Louis, Illinois
Circa 1945 Nick Ems Brewing Company Cardboard Sign with his EMS Beer Brand. Mr. Ems named the brewery after himself and the beer too. Their Logo of “EMS is the Word” must have been pretty poorly received as he was out of business two years later. Hence the 1945-1947 time period for this piece. Wood beer crates for EMS beer are still found quite regularly in the surrounding St. Louis Marketplace.
