    The Walter Brewing Company of Colorado: Pre-Prohibition Advertising Tray. 16.5" oval lithographed tin. The Walter Brewing Company was founded in Pueblo, Colorado in 1898. They advertised their beer using the "The Lady of Quality" ... a stock design offered by the Meek Company to make advertising novelty signs and trays for their clients. "The Walter BR'G Co" produced "Gold Label Beer" around 1900 and, as the tray declares, they sold "Beer of Quality". The condition of this tray shows wear and surface scratches with a small glass ring left under the flowers in the girl's hand. The rim shows one spot on the "E", but nothing detracts from the bright red and how it shows off the little lady who is featured. Not often do we find early advertising for these obscure western breweries.
