Reverse on Glass Phillip Zang Brewing Company Sign, Denver, CO. Pre-Prohibition, circa 1900 with gesso frame.Details
This is a rare advertising relic; an AM radio shaped like a beer bottle made by the Hyde Park Brewery in St. Louis, MO, 1940. The radio stands on a metal frame and the bottle shape is 24 inches tall and 8 inches wide at the bottom of the base. The top of the bottle has a cap which is the radio tuner with the station numbers etched onto the cap allowing for easy tuning to a preferred station. This radio was made before the FM band was invented, therefore only AM stations are available. The Hyde Park brand was a big seller in the St. Louis area. The brewery remained in business until the late 1950’s.
