This is a great, vintage, self framed tin sign advertising Hudepohl Beer from The Hudepohl Brewing Co. of Cincinnati, Ohio. The picture is a kind looking white haired man, corncob pipe clenched between his teeth, about to enjoy a foamy glass of beer. Next to him is the Pure Lager beer bottle, bubbles inside, with the two labels featuring the company double stag logo. The subtle sunset in the background and the smile on the gentleman’s face indicate life couldn’t be better. It has the appearance of a rich wood frame with an oval mat framing the subject but it is entirely lithographed tin. It was made by the H.D. Beach Co. of Coshocton, Ohio. It has the original chain through two factory holes on the top edge, ready for hanging on the wall.
It measures about 15 ¼” by 19 ¼” by 7/16” thick. Overall it is in nice condition with good colors and gloss but there are some scratches, mostly on the “frame” but there is also a little more substantial one in the lower right corner of the “mat”. Although it has the chain to hang it, it unfortunately appears that this was also tacked to the wall with five small diameter nails. Four are in the green mat area and one is in the center just below his right shoulder. We have tried to show a close-up of the damaged areas. There is also some surface rust on the painted back.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
