Why order this Pre Prohibition McAvoy's Malt Marrow Serving Tray?

McAvoy Brewing Company opened in the year that the Civil War ended, 1865. The company was founded by Henry V. Bemis as Bemis & Rindge Brewery and operated by John H. McAvoy. It was one of Chicago's largest breweries before prohibition began in 1920. When the Eighteenth Amendment was ratified and the policy began, the company shut its doors for good.

The company itself made this serving tray, which dates back to the 1910's. The company provided bars and restaurants with trays like this one as a means of advertising their products. Waiters and bartenders would put the customers' drinks on the trays. Trays like this one were typically heavily used, and many were later discarded. This one survived and remains in excellent condition more than a century after it was made. Weighing about a pound and measuring a foot, the tray is sure to make a great addition to any collector of breweriana, especially one focused on the pre-prohibition period. The tray comes with a certificate of authenticity to provide you with the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you are getting the real thing.
