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
This is a brilliant vitrolite glass corner advertising sign for the Round Oak Stove Brand, manufactured by the P.D. Beckwith Company in Dowagiac, Michigan. The company made stoves, ranges and furnaces at the time this sign was made, as they are all mentioned in the sign’s advertising detail. This particular sign incorporates a striking Native American Indian design into the middle of the sign. The same Indian logo was used in many Round Oak Stove advertising items including posters and stoneware advertising giveaway mugs also from the early 1900’s.
