Brewery: Anheuser-Busch, St. Louis, MO
Manufacturer/Plant: Zipproot Inc.
Date of manufacture: Late Prohibition era
Condition/Comments: 25” w x 31” h x 2” d. This large cardboard sign is in excellent condition, especially when one considers its large size and 3D construction. Both characteristics often make such items targets of abuse and incidental mistreatment. This sign has weathered the years exceptionally well and still boasts wonderfully bright, crisp litho quality, highly intact structure, and an overall bright appearance that must be seen to be appreciated. The 3D nature is difficult to discern from the photo, but is created by the approximate 2-inch offset of a separate die cut bottle that is attached to the main sign. The back of the sign retains its original easel stand. The only flaw of note is that one of the points of the green background has been folded back.
