Offering a very rare, Lowenbrau Breweriana advertising display. This display when assembled measures is about 40 in length. It consists of a wood wagon with a lithographed tin, Lowenbrau sign and logo, with a Made in Germany stamp, 24 solid wood beer barrels, two large horses and two men, one a driver and the other a rider. The wagon measures 28 in length and 12 in height. In one corner of the wood seat, it is stamped 2138.Apart from the wagon bed there is another bed hanging beneath it. The wheels are carved wood of 4 diameter in the rear and 3.25 diameter in the front, with a metal band around the rim. There are some splits in the carved wood of the wheels.
On the seat is the original hand-made padded cushion for the driver figure. All the wood pieces needed to harness the horses together is also there although the thin leather straps are dried and delicate. One portion of the harness dried and broke off...
But it is still included for repair. There is a faint stamp on the back of the wagon that reads: Property of Hans Hoherbosch, Inc. The male figures are hand-made of paper-mache. They are also hand painted and each measures 8 in height even when seated. Their arms move up and down but these are delicate, too.The wagon driver is structurally sound with no breaks or repairs although the surfaces show some cracking and crazing. The horse rider has a broken leg. Our local doll and toy soldier shop just closed, so I don't know how to fix this. Like the driver, the surfaces show some cracking and crazing.
There are 24 kegs of beer in three sizes: (4) 2 ¼, (11) 3 ¼ and (9) 3 ½. The two bigger-sized kegs have the Lowenbrau lion logo burned into the end, but the four smaller kegs have no logo. Fading of the logo on some kegs but no structural damage.They are made by Steva in Western Germany. They measure about 11 in length and 9 ½ in height. Each horse was molded from paper mache and covered with a felt that looks like horse hair. Their manes and long tails are genuine horse hair and somewhat discolored from age. Their eyes are painted glass. Each horse has his harness with buckles and bits of tin decoration. Much of this harness is hand sewn.
Most of the harnesses are in nice shape. As mentioned, there is one broken piece where the harness hooks to the wagon and this will be included so you can repair it.
No structural damage to any horse, just some light fading and age wear.
