Scarce - $65

Acme Beer sign ca.1938"Acme Beer -  Iced In Bottles" - professional photocopy of an unused, Art Deco style decal, ca.1938, from my collection.  Since applied decals can't be saved, this example is quite rare - and may be the only one known. The replica is displayed under glass in an 8"x12" metal frame. Unique! $45

Silver Springs hogs head label"Silver Spring Brewery, Ltd. / Victoria, B.C." Measures 16" across not including the 21" square frame. Outstanding stone lithograph of a fire chief lit by a glowing red light from below, suggesting that a fire has been reduced to embers. Above his head are the words, "the life saver" with the double meaning that he is a life saver and can now enjoy a beer that is his life saver. This label would have been applied to the top of a barrel filled with 72 quarts of beer, packed in straw for shipping. The lithograph was prined by Rolph & Clark of Toronto, between 1904 and 1917, and displays a wonderful use of color, light and shadow. Probably the best image of a firefighter in all early advertising.  Great cross catagory collectible as important to firefighting collectors as for brewery and advertising collectors. Perfect condition and professionally framed. $200
