S. Bolton's Sons Brewing Co., Serving Tray, Troy, N.Y., Circa 1910

Featured is a beautiful pre-prohibition era metal or tin serving tray from the S. Bolton’s Sons Brewing Company, which is from about 1910.  This brewery was a prominent one in early Troy, and collectors can find various pieces of advertising from this brewery still today.   Unfortunately like so many other breweries, the business ceased to exist with the start of prohibition in 1919.   This tray advertises their Home Brand Ale brand of alcohol on the wooden keg.
