    This vintage chalkware figure brought BIG bids!

    Auction Bay is the place to take your old advertising items, especially Bar Decor and Beer Signs! We’ll help you turn them into cash, just like we did with this figurine!

    This item is in impressive condition, and makes a fine collectable piece of Breweriana.  Advertising Drewrys Ale and Beer and standing over 16″ tall, this figure is made from chalkware, making it even more desirable (as it is hard to find a chalk figurine in such great shape)!  It features the iconic mountee, proudly standing  aside his horse. It brought 18 bids – a competitive auction for certain – and sold for $717.77!  Genuine articles of vintage bar decor are sought after by fans of the beer as well as advertising collectors, not to mention bartenders.

    Sometimes, the biggest sellers in breweriana are from Beers which no longer are produced, or have changed their mascot or logo.  Whatever your collectible is, Auction Bay can help you bring a strong sale!

    This Pabst Beer display sold for $152.50

    Auction Bay sold this Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer sign for $152.50!

    There are many Beer enthusiasts out there, and many of them are fond of collecting the old advertising pieces for their favorite brews!  Auction Bay can take your old Bar Decor or Beer Signs and turn them into cash, just like we did with this display!

    This item is an impressive piece of Breweriana.  Advertising Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer, it stood a good 14.5″ tall and featured the classic Pabst bartender, proudly touting his wares.  It brought in 11 bids and sold for $152.50! This display and others like it are highly collectible.  Not just for collectors, most any fan of Pabst (or any other beer) will appreciate a genuine article of Bar Decor advertising their favorite drink for their own shelf.

    When it comes to ad pieces like this one, the biggest sellers are often ones from Beers which no longer exist, or ones which have gone through a change in logo design.  Static display items can sell well, but the bids stack even higher for any piece which includes light and/or motion.
