Vintage Kentucky Tavern Bourbon Whiskey Chalk Back Bar Bottle Display Sign:
Scarce 1960's chalk bottle display back bar sign for Kentucky Tavern bourbon whiskey made by Glenmore Distilleries Co. from Louisville, Kentucky.. This also has a space possibly for napkins. This chalk sign bottle display was made by The Mattei Advertising Displays Co. from Louisville, Kentucky. The Mattei Co. made many of the back bar advertising displays seen from the 1950's and 60's. The graphic shows a tavern with two horses waiting outside. The tavern is flanked in front and back by tress. I don't think you could find another in as nice shape as this one. It is 12" tall, just over 13" wide and 4 3/8" deep. The Mattei sticker is still on the back. Rich Penn's great book "Mom and Pop Saloons" lists this on page 226 and dates this as from the 1950's but the Mattei sticker on the back has a zip code in their address that bring this to the 1960's. Please check out my other advertising items. I am happy to combine shipping when possible. Also note that the shipping figure on this piece is based on Coast-to-Coast distance. The closer you are to the Mid Atlantic area the lower shipping will be.
