The woman holds a bouquet of flowers and flowers decorate the woman's hair and the young mans shoulder. The woman wears a gold, snake form bracelet on her upper arm and her beau holds a ring in his right hand - perhaps he is about to propose. Text below the figures reads "Frank Fehr Brewing Co. (Incorporated) / Louisville, Ky". Text on the raised rim at the top reads "Fehr's Famous F.F.X.L. Beers" and text on the raised rim at the bottom reads "None Purer None Better".

This rare and exceptionally beautiful, Pre-Prohibition Tin Lithograph Kentucky Brewery Advertising Beer Tray is in excellent condition and displays beautifully.

There is almost no wear or surface loss to the rolled rim but there is a tiny hole at the top edge of the rim which was surely used to mount the Tray on a wall as an advertising sign.

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:
The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
