Ca1900 Tin Litho Lady Liberty / Patriotic Advertising Serving Tray Large Size For Sale
Very Rare and beautiful, original, ca1900, Large Size, Tin Lithographed, John J. Hauser & Co. (Allentown, Pennsylvania) Shoes Patriotic Subject Giveaway / Premium Advertising Serving Tray. This wonderful, large size oval shaped Tin Litho Tray measures approx. 16" by 13” and features some of the most beautiful illustration we have ever seen on a Tray of this type.
The Tray features a stunningly beautiful central image of a nearly bare breasted and winged Lady Liberty draped in red and blue cloth and holding aloft an electric Light bulb in her right had with radiates a brilliant ray of light. She stands atop the map of North America on a world globe with a large bald eagle at her feet to her left and a second allegorical figure blowing a trumpet at her right. To the right of the central image is another allegorical figure that appears to symbolize Lady Peace as she holds aloft a thin blue ribbon which is also held in the beak of a white dove. To the left of the central image is a 4th allegorical figure that appears to represent War - a beautiful woman holding reins in the form of lightning bolts which attach to three galloping horses. In the background we see an image of the United States Capitol Building and text at the top of the central image reads simply "Liberty" - surely the name of the design.
Text around the Tray on the raised rim reads "John J. Hauser & Co." at the top and bottom and "Fine Shoes" at the tight and left hand sides. The Tray carries the mark of the manufacturer - The Tuscarora Advertising Company of Coshocton, Ohio. The chromolithography is of the very highest quality as would be expected from the outstanding craftsmen employed by this premier maker of tin lithographed advertising items.
This beautiful ca1900 Premium Tray is not a reproduction, reissue or restrike but is an original, turn of the 20th century Tin Lithograph Tray manufactured by the Tuscarora Advertising Company. as a stock item and produced, in this case, for John J. Hauser & Co. of Allentown, Pennsylvania. Although the Tray is not dated, we know that the Tuscarora Advertising Company existed from 1887 to 1901 only.
This very rare and beautiful, turn of the 20th century, Tin Litho Advertising Tray is in very good condition - the lithography is beautiful and the Tray makes an outstanding display piece. There is a small area about the size of a quarter in the clouds at approx. 7 o'clock on the edge of the central area of the Tray that has been restored but we can find no other restorations or repairs. There are some very tiny, scattered surface nicks and tiny blemishes to the image area and some wear to the rolled rim but overall the Tray is well preserved and displays beautifully. The back side of the tray has some light wear only as can be seen in the scans below.
A rare and very attractive, ca1900 Large Size, Tin Lithograph, Allegorical / Patriotic subject Premium Giveaway, Advertising Serving Tray and a fantastic addition to any collection!!!

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.

PLEASE NOTE: I just noticed that I did not include the fact that whoever did the spot of restoration also clear coated the Tray and left some very light brush marks that are visible when the Tray is held at an acute angle to the light.
