Hartmann Brewing Co., Bridgeport, CT Hartmann Brewing Co. Lager, Ales & Porter enamel beer tray. 16 x 13 inch oval. Very early 1900's vintage. Outstanding example of this enameled beer tray with the Baltomore manfacturing stamp on the back. There are a few small areas of very faint yellowish stains that may come out. Nothing real noticable, but needed to mention it. There is some sort of mark between the 2 n's in Hartmann you can see in the photo. I don't think they can be cleaned off. Other very minor thing is a very small light dent above the "H" in the white. Note: I will provide free shipping and insurance on this tray. 9 $.00sold
Red Top Brewing Co., Cincinnati, OH Red Top Extra Dry beer tray. 13 inch round. Shallow dish tray that I'm guessing is from the early 50's. May be earlier. Tray is not mint, but it's a great example of this fairly scarce tray. A couple of outer edge rim wears you can see in the photo. If you inspect the face of the tray closely there is some itty bitty marks. There is a very tiny little rust blister near the picture of the top. 9/9+ $.00sold
Geo. Ehret Hell Gate Brewery, New York, NY Geo. Ehrets Extra beer tray. 13 1/2 x 16 1/2 inch oval. Pre-prohibition tray. Busy, sharp looking graphics. If you inspect the photo carefully it shows pretty much all so I won't take time picking it apart. Just ask if you have any questions. Obviously, there are scattered areas of missing paint and some scratches. At arms length, it'a a decent example for display purposes. Only thing photo doesn't show is a light longish wrinkle running through the "EXT" in Extra. It's not major. I've seen lots worse of these. Color is good and no rust. 7/7+ $.00sold
West End Brewing Co., Utica, NY Utica Club Shultz and Dooley beer tray. 13 inch round. 1960's vintage. Great shape. No issues. 9+ $.00sold
Jos. Schlitz Brewing Co., Milwaukee, WI Erlanger Classic 1893 beer tray. 13 1/4 x 10 3/4 inch. I "think" this is from the late 70's. Heavy metal tray in really nice shape, both front and back. 9+ $.00sold
West End Brewing Co., Utica, NY
(Utica Club)
Utica Club Pilsener beer tray. 11 inch round metal. This is one of the more recent versions of the early pre-pro scene. Not sure exactly when it was issued. Super condition. Has remains of some 2-sided tape on the backside. 9+ $.00
sold
Anheuser-Busch, Inc., St. Louis, MO Budweiser Girl beer tray. 10 1/2 x 12 3/4 inch oval. Nice quality, A-B tray dated 1974. Super shape. Has remains of 2-sided tape on the backside. 9+ $.00sold
Anheuser-Busch, Inc., St. Louis, MO Budweiser Girl holding bottle of Bud beer tray. 10 1/2 x 12 3/4 inch oval. Nice quality, A-B tray dated 1974. Super shape. Has remains of 2-sided tape on the backside. 9+ $.00sold

sold
Fidelio Brewery, New York, NY Fidelio tavern beer tray. 12 inch round. Real nice shape, but may have been coated with a protectant.. Don't know for sure as I have none to compare it with. I do think it's slightly darker than it should be. Front is very clean and shiny. Backside has some rusting, but not real bad. Other than the color, the front would be a 9/9+. The flash made the color a little more vivid than it actually is. Copyright 1936. (See Descr) $.00sold
Presidente, Dominican Republic Presidente Tipo Pilsener Beer tray. 13 inch round. Probably 50's vintage. Excellent condition on a tray I've not seen before. There's some very tiny pit specks and some light spidering you can see with angled light. All blemishes are barely noticable. 9- $.00sold
Bubes Brewery, Mt Joy, PA A. Bube's Brewery tip tray. 6 3/4 x 4 3/4 inch metal. Great shape with exception of some paint missing on the lower left side. It sort of blends in with the scene. Vintage unknown, but must be somewhat recent. (See Descr) $.00
sold
Schultz Brewing Co., Union City, NJ Schultz Quality Beer & Ale tip tray. 4 3/8 inch round metal. 1930's vintage. Reasonable shape and scarce. Photo shows rim at 2 angles. If you look close, the photo is a fairly good representation of condition even though it doesn't show every detail. It displays pretty well. A deeper red than photo depicts. 7 $.00
sold
Miller Brewing Co., Milwaukee, WI Miller High Life Lady on Moon oval beer tray. 15 1/4 x 12 1/2 inch oval. This is the earlier 40's version with "The Best Milwaukee Beer" at the bottom pre-dating all the trays that say "Champagne of Bottle Beer". Note that the lady is wearing striped stockings which is also different than the newer ones. Backside and outer rim is all plain blue. Hard to find this tray real nice these days. This one is a pretty decent example. Front and back have some minor spidering and small rust spots. It retains excellent color and the focal points are in excellent shape. The rust spots are around the outer part. The photo pretty much shows it all. 8/8+
$.00sold
Miller Brewing Co., Milwaukee, WI Miller High Life Lady on Moon early beer tray. 13 inch round. This is the earlier 40's version with "The Best Milwaukee Beer" at the bottom pre-dating all the trays that say "Champagne of Bottle Beer". Note that the lady is wearing striped stockings which is also different than the newer ones. Backside and outer rim is blue, but unlike the oval one, there is lettering on the outside rim. This is a great example of this version and is as nice as it looks in the photo. Real nice luster. My only thought with it is that the blue may not be as blue as it should be, but I have none to compare it with. Hard to find this version this clean. 9/9+

Jos. Schlitz Brewing Co., Milwaukee, WI
(Old Milwaukee)
Old Milwaukee retro tray. 12 1/2 x 15 inch oval. Heavy metal tray. I think from the 80's. Minty. 9++ $15.00
Pabst Brewing Co., Milwaukee, WI Pabst Blue Ribbon retro tray. 13 inch round. I think from the 80's. Minty. 9++ $.00sold
Jos. Schlitz Brewing Co., Milwaukee, WI Schlitz 2-sided beer tray. 12 inch round. Copyright 1954. Very nice backside. Some rust blistering at the outer edge around 2 o'clock. You can see it in the photo. I started with the backside since many people prefer to display it that way. The front side has a few very minor spidering spots and a couple of very tiny rust blisters. 9- $.00sold
Rheingold Brewing Co., Brooklyn, NY Rheingold Gil Hodges beer tray. 11 1/2 inch round. I think they put these out in the 70's to salute Gil Hodges as a New York Met star. Nice cross collectible. Real nice shape. 9/9+ $.00
sold
Duquesne Brewing Co., Pittsburgh, PA Silver Top Lager beer tray. 13 inch round. Somewhere around 1960 vintage. Looks super. At close inspection it has a little minor paint bubbling, but no rust. Also at close inspection, it has some very minor stacking scuffs around the outer edge 9- $.00sold
The Lion, Inc., Wilkes-Barre, PA Gibbons beer tray. 13 inch round. Probably late 60's vintage. Minty. 9++ $12.00
Miller Brewing Co., Milwaukee, WI Miller High Life Lady on Moon side profile. 13 inch round. This is a similar version to the one listed up farther, but more recent. I believe this is from the later 40's or early 50's? "Champagne of Bottle Beer" at the bottom, plain stockings, and a red bottom with lettering on the red outside rim are the difference from the earlier version. NOTE: The tray appears near mint in the photo, but there is light overal spidering and some hairline scratches present. Displays very well at arms length. The issues are seen mainly at an angle. Plain red backside has some spidering and a little rusting. This also comes in a 12 inch version which may be more recent. Does not have wavyness in the rim like some newer versions do. 8/8+ $.00
sold
Miller Brewing Co., Milwaukee, WI Miller High Life Lady on Moon front profile. 13 inch round. This is the Canco version. I believe this is from the 50's. "Champagne of Bottle Beer" at the bottom. There is one thin scratch above the "L" in Life that you can see in the photo. Otherwise the front is in real nice shape. Plain red backside has some spidering and a little rusting. Don't recall if this comes in 12 inch or not. There is one like this on my clearance page that is not marked Canco and the blue is a little darker shade. Nice 9 $35.00
Stegmaier Brewing Co., Wilkes-Barre, PA Stegmaier Gold Medal Beer plastic beer tray. 13 inch round. This one is a little less common than the other red one and difficult to find nice. This one is pretty good. There is some silver missing, not nearly as much as most. 8+ $9.00
