Why purchase this Tin Lithograph Monroe Brewing Co. Pre Prohibition Tip Tray?

Step back in time more than a century with this Monroe Brewing Company Lithograph Tip Tray. Tip trays like this one were provided to bars and restaurants free of charge by breweries. Waiters and waitresses would place customers' change in them at the end of transactions. The tip trays were typically used quite heavily and, accordingly, are often damaged. This one remains in Excellent condition more than a century after it was last used. The tray was made by Monroe Brewing Co. in Rochester, NY. This piece weighs about 3 oz and measures 4.25" in diameter.

Before the Prohibition Era, breweries were popping up across the United States. The alcoholic beverage industry was booming, and drinkers across the country had a seemingly endless array of options. The country was going through some considerable changes in the decade leading up to prohibition. The income tax and Federal Reserve were introduced in 1913, and the United States entered World War I the year before hostilities ended. Women were also making progress, which ultimately led to them getting the right to vote just months after prohibition began. This is an excellent time piece to take you back to that important period in American history.
