My favorite find. IMPERIAL BREWING CO., KANSAS CITY, MO / IMPERIAL SEAL / BOTTLE BEER tray. Even my wife Jeanie likes this one. Great image of the Papa Bear, Mama Bear and the kids.

Nice additions to your collection. I really like the tray also. If I had room for them with all my other junk I would probably collect beer trays. The graphics on some of them are fantastic.

The tray is speaking to me no doubt a great addition. The oyster flask is cool. Your bottles look Heavenly! Sweet background. Love your pictures and posts.

Neat tray. Wouldn't get away with it nowadays with Papa Bear two-fisting it, etc. etc. I mean what kind of example is that to set for your cubs?

Glad you did good at the show. I walked away with 4 for my shelf and a couple I’m gonna throw in the tumbler for the next show. Other 2 are in the tumbler.

That oyster you picked up was put out by the William Foust Distillery in Glen Rock, Pa. That distillery did a lot of figural type containers. They did a potato, a ham, a turkey, a Billy club, a pretzel, a cigar, and several others that I can't remember off hand. That oyster was a good find and very desirable to the Foust collectors. I have one of their pretzels and it looks real. They started to produce the Nippers at the beginning of the Temperance period which in turn end up with the passing of the Volstead Act (PROHIBITION)....

They all look pretty ripped. Who needs porridge right?

The clear Casper's is scarcer than the cobalt. Talked to a Casper's guy at the JAX show who said there is at least one amber that he knows about.
