Rare Ruhstaller Steam Beer Tin Advertising Tray, Sacramento California:
Offered here without reserve is this late 19th C Ruhstaller (of Sacramento California) litho on tin advertising tray for the company's steam beer. The tray measures 16 5/8" x 13 5/8". Insofar as condition is concerned, on a scale of 1 to 10 I'd grade the tray an 8. There are no scratches to the surface, but its presumably glazed surface has become matted. In addition, picture 7 shows a few spots to the lower left of the tray where the paint has begun to deteriorate from the oxidization of the tin beneath it (see also picture 4). Overall, however, the colors are crisp and bright, making this tray a great addition to any corresponding collection. Again, there is but buyer pays $16 for domestic USPS priority mail shipping.
