Kamm Schellinger RPG Corner Sign
Among the most beautiful pieces of breweriana. Features a lion climbed to the top of the world globe and a bottle of Private Stock Export. Beautiful reverse painted glass with highly detailed and textured silver and gold leaf details. The artwork featuring the lion, globe and bottle is paper applied from behind. NOTE: the printing process used to create the image on this paper appears to be later than the rest of the piece. The wood backing, embossed brass or copper retainer and glass ad panel appear to be original, however it is unknown if there was restoration done other than the later paper piece. If so, the quality and detail are inderscinable from period work as the quality of the reverse paint and foil is as good as it gets. Paint shows wear consistent with age and silver leaf shows some oxidation in places.
