Here is an early reverse on glass sign framed in a gesso frame from the Olympia Brand of beer, out of Olympia, WA. It’s made from Tumwater, and this slogan has lasted for years, as did the horseshoe brand design in the center with the waterfall. This early pre-prohibition sign is from about 1900-1905.Details
Here is a great tin sign from the Falstaff brand of beer. Falstaff originated with the William J. Lemp Brewing Company which was based in St. Louis, MO. This brand eventually opened up multiple breweries throughout the United States, including New Orleans, LA, San Jose, CA, Omaha, NE, Cranston, R.I., Tampa, FL, etc.
The blue color used in this sign is unusual. Typically Falstaff used their white/gold/black color scheme with some occasional green and red signs also being used. This blue color is perhaps the only one I have seen with this color scheme. Circa 1950, this sign was intended for outdoor usage only.
