Very early Limoge china from the Charles Stegmaier estate. These were part of a set given to me by a family member. One’s mind can conjure up the thought that these were a gift for the contract to make the Limoge plates seen on page 7. Alas, I think these are somewhat earlier than the advertising plates.
A pair of point-of-sale signs that I believe are from the later 50’s. Both are marked “MDZIP 41”. The left one measures 14 x 11 inches. The right one is more elaborate for a typical point-of-sale sign as the 6-packs are applied with separate pieces of cardboard, giving it a 3-D appearance. It measures 10 7/8 x 13 1/2 inches. Both are designed for hanging.
Another pair of point-of-sale signs that are a little newer. Both are designed for hanging or standing with an easel back. The left one features straignt steel cans with plastic holders (probably late 60’s) that keep the 6-pack intact. The bock sign, which is a little older, features no deposit – no return bottles with “twist top” caps (I believe the twist off caps were introduced in the early 60’s). Both are 11 x 14 inches.
