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
Rare Meyercord Wood Sign from the Schott Brewery in Highland, Illinois, circa late 1930’s. The Schott brewery was originally called the Highland Brewery before Prohibition. The Schott family was involved in the production of soda in the late 1800’s at the same time they owned the brewery in Highland. The Schott brewery had many brands of beer, sold under various labels. Much of the breweries advertising proudly proclaimed their beer was aged in their famous Schott brewery caverns or caves. Unfortunately the brewery closed in the early 1950’s after the larger national breweries started to take more and more market share away from small town breweries. The former Schott brewery still stands in Highland, but is currently abandoned, although the caves remain underneath.
