Rare Antique Pre-pro Columbus Ohio Hoster's Wiener Beer Advertising Charger 1890:
RARE ANTIQUE PRE-PRO COLUMBUS OHIO HOSTER'S WIENER BEER ADVERTISING CHARGER 1890
LARGE SIZE 24 INCH DIAMETERThis has got to be the coolest beer tray I have seen. It is very rare. It is so rare that I can not find any sale or sales records for this exact tray. I found one that was similar but not quite as cool as this one with its catchy phrases like "THE BEER PROPER" or "A VERDICT upon LIQUID FOOD"
The tray is marked CHAS. W SHONK CO LITHO CHICAGO B.367
To the best of my knowledge I would date this to have been made in the late 1890's because this is the date I have found the bottle pictured to be listed as.
The tray has some condition issues (please see pics for condition) but they do not distract from its awesomeness. This tray comes from an Antique Shop that was closed off for twenty years.
It is very possible it would shine up a lot more under the hands of an expert cleaning. I have only lightly washed it with water and dish soap since I am not an expert in cleaning these.
