Root Beer Advertising Sign/Tray
Hires, The Honest Root Beer". A great old Hires Root
Beer tin advertising sign or serving tray. It measures
16 1/2 tall and 13 3/4 wide. Considering its age it is
in good shape. There are a few blemishes and a minor ding
at about 1 o'clock.
These are highly collectible and this one is from c. 1904.
E Hires (1851 to 1937), a Philadelphia druggist, became
"The Father of Root Beer" in the early 1870's
when he concocted a medicinal drink recipe that mixed
roots and herbs. He sold the syrup at his drugstore, at
soda fountains and at grocery stores for home use. And
he advertised his soft drink through everything from mugs,
signs and trays to dispensers, watch fobs and trade cards.
Some of the best early pieces feature the "Hires
Boy" sometimes dubbed the "Ugly Kid." The
boy was illustrated wearing a dress from 1891 to 1906,
a bathrobe from 1907 to 1914, and a dinner jacket from
1915 to 1926. Hires Root Beer Collectibles are featured

It is a pink 10" Colonial Pattern, also called "Knife

Company. This is a very beautiful piece of depression
glass. It has some very light scratches to the top of
the dividers, though this is very minimal. There is one
very tiny chip on the rim that you can feel with your
finger, but it is barely noticeable to the eye. There

CZECH BRASS & JEWEL BASKETw/4 INTAGLIO OPEN SALTS
Glass was only made between 1918 and 1938 after that
the country was to become known as The Czech Republic."
Glass works that are signed made in Czechoslovakia were
only made during that era.
metal frame with colored salt trays
richly colored intaglio salt trays nest in the arms of
this jeweled and gilded metal basket made in Czechoslovakia
in the 1920's. Such a large holder is not commonly found
today, and all the its jewels are present. The colored
glass trays have the classical motifs usual to Czech intaglios
of this period, and are easily identifiable by their brilliant
colors. Two of the trays may be replacements, as they
are of different scenes, but the presentation is very
colorful and desirable. The basket measures 4" to
the top of its jeweled handle, and 5-1/2" at the
widest. Some slight waves may be seen in the handle's
loop and tray holders, but there are no distracting distortions
and no cracks or repairs. The base is marked with worn
letters "Made in Czechoslovakia" as pictured..
The glass trays have no chips or cracks, and no apparent
grinding. They are 2-1/4"x1-1/2"x1/2".
This makes a very showy presentation and is highly desirable
as collectible early Czech artisanship. ID=ANTQ24
Light Blue 9 1/4" Glass Knife Star Pattern
the mid-1920's through to the 1940's glass knives were
part and parcel of most complete kitchens. It was an era
in which most everything imaginable was made out of glass
-- from mail boxes to tableware to floor lamps to serving
trays to dresses! Ranging in size from about 7-1/2 to
9-1/2" these glass knives were most commonly made
in crystal [the Depression Glass collector term for transparent
uncolored glass], but were also available in amber, blue,
green, pink, and white. Now, why would one ever want a
knife made out of glass you may ask? The best answer comes
from an original advertisement for the "DUR-X GLASS
FRUIT and CAKE KNIFE" a gadget designed and patented
by a certain John Didio of Buffalo, New York in November
very neat 9 1/4" glass knife. It is a light blue
and has stars down the handle. The blade is rough, it
could be ground smooth pretty easy. There is a small nick
on the end of the handle. Made in the U.S.A. and has pat,
pend. on the blade. A really neat glass knife ID=ANTQ25

Macbeth-Evans Glass Company produced a crystal Depression
glass pattern that goes by two names. S Pattern or Stippled
Rose Band. Produced from 1930-1933.
MacBeth-Evans Glass Company is another well-known maker
of Depression Glass. Although not as large a producer
of this glass as some of the other companies, they made
some very well known and popular patterns including
American Sweetheart, Chinex Classic, Cremax, Dogwood,
Petalware, "S" Pattern and Thistle. Most of
their patterns have pieces that are not as readily available
today other than very basic luncheon sets. Formed in
1895 from a merger of MacBeth Glass and Evans Glass,
they were bought out in 1937 by the Corning Glass Works.
They still operated under the MacBeth-Evans name through
the late 1940's before being phased out by Corning.
Green Depression Glass 3 Compartment Grill Plates
of Six Green Depression Glass Divided Grill Plates.
Each Plate measures 9" diam. Transparent Green
color that appears to "glow" in the sunlight.
Three compartment plate with a tiny stippled band pattern
under the outer rim. All are in Excellent Clean Condition
with No chips or cracks. Very few scratches that are
not readily noticable or distracting. No marks from
utensils. These have had very little if any use &
the few scratches look to be more from storage than
dining. These could have been made by Hazel Atlas, Anchor
Hocking, Jeannette or McKee glass. I am not sure of
the exact manufacturer. A Great Addition to your Depression
Glass Table Setting. ID=ANTQ61
