Adler Brau Beer Porcelain Corner Sign
Why order this Porcelain Adler Brau Beer Corner Sign?
George Walter opened the Walter Brewing Co. in Appleton, Wisconsin in 1918, the year that the First World War ended. It initially brewed a light lager known as Adler Brau (German for "Eagle Beer). The brewery was forced to shut its doors when the 18th Amendment was ratified, but it reopened following the repeal of the Amendment in 1933 and remained open into the 1970's. The company's unique history, which straddled the prohibition era, makes its branded memorabilia particularly attractive to collectors who like pieces that provide connections with particular eras goneby.
This porcelain sign is the type that was provided by the brewery free of charge to bars and restaurants. Both used them for advertising. Corner signs like this were often damaged or broken due to heavy use and wear. That makes this one all the more attractive, as it remains in excellent condition. The sign dates back to the 1950's. It weighs about eight pounds and measures 20"x14". It would make a great piece for any collection of Breweriana, especially one that is focused on memorabilia from the Midwest.
