Jacob Ruppert Beer Serving Tray

In stock
This is a single sided tin lithograph tray with two toasting beer mugs. These trays were used in bars and restaurants for waiters and waitresses to place the customers drinks. 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 add this Jacob Ruppert Beer Serving Tray to your collection?

Step back in time to two of the most important decades in American history with this serving tray that advertised Jacob Ruppert Beer. Breweries gave this type of tray to businesses to advertise their beers, and they were often used heavily. Accordingly, many were damaged and thrown away, especially after the introduction of prohibition in 1920. Made from tin lithograph, this tray was made in New York City by Advertising Arts Inc. Weighing about a pound and measuring 16" x 13", the tray remains in excellent condition. The tray includes its original display stand and shows two hands toasting.

This tray would have been used in the very early days of the 1920's before prohibition was introduced and/or starting in 1933, when prohibition ended. The 20's and 30's were important years in American history. The former saw one of the greatest economic booms in history, while the latter included most of the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, and the stage being set for America's eventual entry into the Second World War. This tray, which provides a unique connection to the period, comes with a certificate of authenticity.
