Here’s a fabulous Rueter and Company Reverse on Glass sign, circa 1900 from the long defunct Boston, Massachusetts Brewery. The company was known for the ales and porter style beer. Later Rueter merged and formed a partnership with Ally, and was called the Rueter and All Brewing Company prior to prohibition starting.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.
