Why purchase this Tin Narragansett Beer Dr. Seuss Serving Tray?

Dr. Seuss is one of the most beloved authors and illustrators of children's books of all time. Some may find it surprising, then, that a beer serving tray features one of his characters. Such was American culture in the 1950's and 1960's, the decade to which this tray dates. The whimsical character carries a beer on this sign from the Narragansett Brewing Co. The company was located in Cranston, Rhode Island and provided signs like this one to bars and restaurants to promote its beer. The establishments used the signs heavily, so it is no surprise that most of them were damaged. This one, however, remains in Excellent condition. Made from tin lithograph, the sign weighs about a pound and measures 15".

The 1950's and 1960's saw dramatic contrasts in American culture. During those decades, the United States was involved in both the Korean War and the Vietnam War, the latter of which tore the country apart. Changes in policies such as segregation brought greater equality in many parts of the country, and rock music and the Sexual Revolution changed the country permanently. This piece would work nicely for collectors of pieces from that period or fit beautifully in any breweriana collection.
