Schlitz Beer Globe Porcelain Sign

In stock
This is a single sided porcelain sign. The company 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 breweriana pieces.

Why purchase this Porcelain Schlitz Beer Globe Sign?

Known as "the beer that made Milwaukee famous," Schlitz was one of the most popular beers in America for much of the 20th century. In fact, it was number one on that list several times in the first half of the century, initially achieving the status in 1902, and swapped the title with Anheuser-Busch repeatedly in the 1950's. Its famous advertising slogan, "When you're out of Schlitz, you're out of beer," helped the company to grow into the status of an American icon.

The beer was brewed by the Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company, which was based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The company often sent signs like this one to restaurants and bars free of charge to advertise their products. They were the forerunners to the beer signs that appear in and around bars today. This sign dates back to the 1930's and the Great Depression. Signs like this were heavily used, so they were often damaged. That makes this sign stand out, as it remains in excellent condition. The sign measures 14" and weighs about three pounds. This sign would work beautifully in a more complete display of breweriana pieces or as a standalone throwback to one of the time periods that most contributed to the development of the America in which we live today.
