This is an Anheuser-Busch Malt-Nutrine Tin Sign, Circa 1905. It’s a self-framed tin sign with an image of women and “winged cherub” babies. This advertising sign “The Fountain of Health” was likely displayed in a doctor’s office and is considered fairly rare.
Burton Ale & Porter Brewing Co, Wm Kiefer Saloon Stoneware Mug, St. Louis, MO
Circa 1900 Stoneware Mug from the Burton Ale and Porter Brewing Company in Saint Louis Missouri. Also pictured is a saloon stoneware advertising mug from the William Wm Kiefer Saloon, also in St. Louis, MO. These are both very hard to find. The Burton Ale and Porter company was only in business for two years from 1898-1900 before it went out of business. Pre-Prohibition mugs.
EMS Brewing Co, Cardboad Beer Sign, E. St. Louis, IL
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.

Columbia Brewing Company Beer mug, thought to have been used during the St. Louis Worlds Fair in 1904 as the Columbia Brewing Company had a large display and brought out their Alpen Brau label at this event. This mug is hand painted and features a pewter lid. Ca 1904
