Magnus Beck Beer Tin Lithograph Tip Tray

In stock
This is a single sided tin lithograph tip tray with an attractive graphic of a Bald Eagle & beer barrel. These small 4” trays were used in bars and restaurants for waiters and waitresses to place the customers change at the end of the transaction. The brewery would supply the bar or restaurant owners these types of advertising items free of charge. It was a win-win for both parties. Typically these pieces are damaged as they were heavily used. Many collectors have a space in their home or garage where they display these types of pieces. Rec rooms are a great place to hang these signs. Some collectors specialize in a certain brand or category such as beer.

Why buy this Tin Lithograph Magnus Beck Beer Tip Tray?

Magnus Beck Brewery was an institution of Buffalo, New York. The company was founded by Joseph Friedman, who sold it to Magnus Beck & Baumgartner in 1855. The brewery prided itself on "brewing the best, not the most." The company operated until the Prohibition Era, which started in 1920. The company reopened following the end of the period, but it shut its doors permanently in 1956. This tip tray from the company would make a fantastic addition to any collection of breweriana, especially for those who have high standards for their beer.

This tin lithograph tip tray would have been provided to restaurants and bars by the brewery free of charge as a means of advertising their beer. The tray would have been used to exchange change in transactions. The sign was manufactured in Buffalo, New York, where the brewery was headquartered. The tray measures 4.25" in diameter and weighs about three ounces. Although it is more than a century old, it remains in excellent condition.
