Pictured is a neat advertising glass paperweight from the Southern Cooperage Company which was at 110 Victor Street near downtown Saint Louis, Missouri. This company produced many wooden barrels used in the brewery and whiskey distillery business sectors. Wood barrels were the handiwork of coopers who were skilled artisans in barrel making. Circa 1900.Details
Featured is an amazing hunting advertising self-framed tin sign from the Du Pont hunting brand, this one featuring their powder shotgun or rifle like shells. The image features two retriever dogs, potentially Brittany Spaniels on the sign. DuPont was in competition with Remington, Winchester, and many other early firearms manufacturers. A great sign!
