Measures about 37" x 17" x 4 weighs nearly 5 lbs without packaging. Seems to have been a store display/advertisement, to display Budweiser bottles, as it encourages folks to Take Home Budweiser Beer. For age and intended use, colors are sharp, vibrant, maintains all its character, and displays quite well!Stenciled on back, but faded NO 18. I had a fellow eBayer write, saying they have this sign, voiced belief it's rare and worth more than I'm asking! I'm no expert, but I believe the sign dates to the mid-1930s, since Take Home Budweiser Beer Makes Good Food Taste Better, was a slogan used from just after the end of prohibition (1935), into WWII (1943).
My sense is this was created before the war, as metal was used for the war effort. I also believe the reason it's hard to find other records of this sign, is they were likely scrapped for the war effort. For conditions, review photos closely using magnifying tool or zoom in. Sign likely dates to mid-1930s, and in used, but good condition.
Wear consistent with age, intended use, small indentations, dings, scratches, tiny rust spots. Colors bright, vibrant, letters/words appear painted/stenciled (see photo 12) and sign retains an affixed tin lithograph (on the right) featuring Budweiser on a silver platter. Attached hardware seems intact and solidly affixed to sign. If you have questions or would like more photos, please ask!
