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 country store.

Why order this 1900's Duff Gordon Sherry Metal Vienna Art Plate?

Vienna Art Plates were advertising pieces that companies gave to restaurants and bars to promote their products. They were commonly referred to as "Vienna Art Plates" regardless of which company made them. These pieces featured finely detailed art that drew attention to the featured products. They were a sharp contrast from simple signs and most other types of advertising. Signs like this one tended to be used quite heavily and were often damaged as a result. This one stands out because it is in excellent condition. The plate was made from tin lithograph by H.D. Beach Co. in Chicago, Illinois. This piece weighs about twelve ounces and measures 10". The plate comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Beyond its obvious attraction to art plate collectors and collectors focused on alcohol themed pieces, this one also suits those who are interested in turn of the century pieces. It dates back to the first decade of the 20th century. The decade saw such important events at the San Francisco earthquake, the assassination of President William McKinley, the first motorized flight by the Wright Brothers, and the beginning of the Panama Canal project.
