Why purchase this 1950's Western Express Air Advertising Serving Tray?

Fly back in time to the 1950's with this advertising serving tray from Western Express Air. Servers used these trays for placing customers' drinks. Trays like this one tended be used used heavily and suffer damage from spilled drinks, other mishaps, and general wear ant tear. This one, however, is still in Excellent condition more than half a century after it was first made. It was made by Western Air Express Inc. in Los Angeles, CA. The tin lithograph tray weighs about a pound and measures 13" in diameter. This piece would make a terrific addition to any transportation and/or communication themed collection.

This is also an appealing time period piece. It dates back to a time when flying was more sophisticated. The 1950's was an important decade for the United States and the world. The United States and the Soviet Union fought a proxy war on the Korean Peninsula. The Soviets also scored a major Space Race victory with the launching of Sputnik I, the first satellite. The decade also saw the discovery of the DNA double helix, one of the most important scientific discoveries in history. It paved the way for much of the medicine and biotechnology that we enjoy today. This piece provides a great connection with this important period.
