Description

    Early Pabst Blue Ribbon Advertising Sign Featuring African American Waiter Founded in 1844, Pabst is one of the oldest brewing companies in America. In 1882 they started tying blue silk ribbons around their "Select" beer. People started asking for that "blue ribbon" beer and in 1895 they officially changed the name to Pabst Blue Ribbon. Here is a super cardboard advertising sign from the 1940s in a period frame showing a black waiter holding a tray of Pabst bottles and oysters on the half shell. Proclaims "Looks Good - Tastes Good" and "Always in Crystal Clear Bottles" and shows the old-style Pabst Milwaukee logo. Sight size is 20.25" x 10.25". Condition is very fine save for a minor stained area and a small gouge that does not detract from the overall appearance of this sign. This would look great hanging behind a bar!
