...My Stegmaier Collection


A rare pre-prohibition porcelain corner sign. Note that the sign is in 5 different colors. A very expensive process in those days. The typical early porcelain signs were generally seen in only 2 or 3 colors. An example of Stegmaier's very generous advertising budget.
An early Dresden Art metal plate by the Meek Company back-stamped for Stegmaier. One of the pretty ladies Steg used for advertising in the early days.
An early pre-prohibition self-framed lithograph on tin by the firm of Shonk. Note that the baby is reaching out for a glass of Steg Malt Extract being held by Mom while Dad is enjoying a glass of Steg beer being poured by the maid. The tablecloth is embroidered with the familiar Steg emblem.

Also of interest, is that many of Steg's pre-prohibition and early post-prohibition pieces were executed by Chicago firms. This may have been a result of family ties in the "windy city". The Amelia Stegmaier Pool (Daughter of Fredrick Stegmaier) family relocated from Wilkes-Barre to the Chicago suburbs in the early 1900's.
