Brewery: What Cheer Brewing Co., Providence, RI
Date of manufacture: circa 1900s
Condition/Comments: 5-inch diameter. Very little advertising exists from this tiny RI brewery and this tip tray is very rare. These larger trays with more surface area tend to be more susceptible to wear and damage than their more ubiquitous smaller 4-1/4-inch cousins. So it is remarkable to find examples such as this with so little wear. While not perfect, the only things keeping it from that are a few very light areas of scratching and wear on the rim. The paint is smooth and shiny, bright as the day it was made.
