Extremely rare and very early back bar advertising lamp. This bottle of Schlitz beer would look great on your home bar! Much earlier than the cheap plastics of the 60's, this piece is all metal and glass, and both are in excellent condition. No breaks or cracks, brown painted finish shows only the expected wear. I believe this is 40's or 50's, it's a miracle that this piece survived with everything intact! Label appears to be painted on. Paint is in very good condition for it's age with only moderate wear. You might see a few little dings here and there, but that's to be expected and in general the graphics are incredibly clean, down to the original paper labels in back. Schlitz insignia on top is made of metal, and that too is in good condition with no breaks or cracks. Wiring is good, works well. Overall a fine piece, very realistic looking, with only moderate wear. It's nearly impossible to find these early light up advertising pieces in this kind of condition!
