Painted wood sign for Gutsch Gold Schaum beer.
Has "Meyercord Company Chicago" in small print on bottom. (Sign manufacturer?)
According to my father-in-law this sign was found under the floor boards of a building in Fond du Lac, Wisc.
From what I can find online there were various incarnations of Gutsch from the mid-1800s to the time of prohibition, until eventually it became Kingsbury Breweries in the 1930s.
It's a very unique image of a victorian couple enjoying the beer at a table, depicted in the middle of a large crab with its claws around the bottle. Sorry about the flash glare in the image.
I haven't found anything like it online, but would love to learn more about it if anyone has more info!
