Bar tray

Object Number: 
1 1/4 x 13 1/4 in. diameter
A deep edged beer tray with a green and black rim marked in gold "Hampden/ Hampden Ale/ Hampden Lager/ Hampden Brewing Co./ Willimansett, Mass.", around a central black field printed with a portrait of a squint-eyed, buck- toothed, large eared, bald, skinny waiter in a tuxedo holding a tray with a glass of beer over the caption "Who Wants The Handsome Waiter?". Probably an offensive portrayal of an Irish server.
Credit Line:
