Why order this 1915 Hires Root Beer Tin Lithograph Serving Tray?

Start or grow your collection of Americana with this tin lithograph serving tray from Hires Root Beer. This type of tray was often provided to restaurants and bars so that servers could place the customers' drinks on them. This sign was effective advertising for the root beer, and the establishments were not charged for them. Trays of this type were typically used heavily. Consequently, manager were damaged and discarded. This tray, though, remains in excellent condition. It was made by Charles E. Hires Co. from tin lithograph. The tray weighs about a pound, and measures 13.5".

The tray dates back to 1915. That is the year that the RMS Lusitania was sunk by a German U-boat. Although the United States did not enter World War I until 1917, the event played a key role in getting the country involved. Nearly 1200 civilians were killed as the ship sunk en route to Liverpool from New York. 1915 was also the year that President Woodrow Wilson joined John Tyler and Grover Cleveland as the only Presidents to marry while in office.
