I have focused my collection on "shell" beer glasses and chalkware. Shell glasses are the straight-sided taster glasses, usually 4 to 5 inches in height.

  1. Looks to be in great shape. Fairly common backbar statue but the coloring is a bit different than most. If you need a bottle let me know. I have a case of the authentic bottles for this statue. It was...
  2. Great collection!
  3. Rare find. Atlas' most famous brew was Prager Bohemian. Bottles don't command a huge price even when full but some Chicago collectors might pony up. Graphics are really nice. Crate is also in great sh...
  4. Not very rare, sorry to say. Have seen them on ebay in VG shape going for $50.
  5. I assume it is quite rare as I have never seen it before. $500 or more would be my best guess. Great find!
  6. Congrats! I saw these for sale at at online auction. Nice acquisition!
  7. Very Nice! the 33 -1 advertising campaign started in 1940 and petered out in 1945.
  8. Great display! The wall of signs & lithos is a nice complement to the wall of cans.
  9. Nice. You probably evolved from cans to other breweriana like a lot of us. I started to collect taster glasses a few years ago and am also trying to find similar collectors. Good luck. If I run into a...
  10. Nice piece. Is she attached to this sign?
  11. Just another thought...I have been watching pre-pro items on ebay for many years and have not seem these. Typically reproductions come up for auction several times over a period of months or years. If...

  13. Definitely 1950's. Drewrys moved from Canada to US and started using the Canadian Mountie for a logo. Canadian gov't was incensed and Drewry's gave it up going into the 60's. A couple of plaster statu...
  14. Looks like 1950's to me. Have never seen one like it. I would guess it's made of resin? Lots of tap-handle collectors would love to have it. Keep an eye out at: http://www.ebay.com/sch/Tap-Handles-Kn...
  15. Chalk or chalkware is actually plaster of Paris. Based on the logo located on the shade, this item is from the 50's. The chalkware statue itself is frequently auctioned on ebay (search"Drewrys" in bre...
  16. What a great piece! I have been collecting breweriana for decades and have seen this in lithograph form (poster). Very desirable item in litho. If yours is authentic and not a reproduction it could be...
  17. What a great piece! Is it ceramic or chalk?
