Anheuser-Busch Black & Tan Porter Sign: 13.75 x 9-5/8″ Important and extremely rare, early embossed tin litho beer sign for Anheuser-Busch Co.’s “Black and Tan” porter, w/ great image of early labeled bottle and babies holding Co. banner. Has strong colors and displays quite nicely, although there is some general oxidized darkening and wear to outer border edges (would be mostly hidden if framed), w/ some light bends and a few non-offensive scattered litho loss and wear spots scattered about (Kaufmann & Strauss Lithographers). Impressive piece, displays nicely (as a strong C. 7.5/+), as found, should improve w/ cleaning (note: a little minor restoration could improve to a C. 8.5/+ appearance). Min. bid $250.
