    Question Lemp Falstaff papier mache beer sign

    Found in thrift store in NJ. Have learned it's from around 1905. Nothing like it on Ebay. Any ideas? Bought it for only $20.
    Does anyone have worthpoint access...just found similar one there. Thanks for any help.

    I’ve never seen one before , or papier-mache before either . I would think it should be a good rare item well worth 20 ,,,, I’m pretty sure I would have bought it . Congrats !!! Nice find !!

    Contact a reputable dealer in St. Louis. Anheuser Busch is most popular there, but anything from Lemp is typically desirable!

    Maybe the National Brewery Museum in Potosi Wisconsin would be interested.

    Daaaaang! Nice pick and congratulations! St. Louis area guy here and the supposedly haunted Lemp Mansion is a wildly popular attraction here. Stories of madness, suicide and murder most foul.

    Looks like the collector offered you a very fair price, 375 is no low-ball offer but I don't know how rare such pieces are; they would never survive in the elements like porcelain signs. I'm glad that both of you are happy!
