IF YOU READ NOTHING ELSE, READ THIS!
This is a timed closing auction. Not every item ends exactly at 7:00pm on 9/8. Starting at 7:00pm, the first 4 lots will start to close. At 7:01 the next 3 lots will start to close. At 7:02 3 more lots will start to close and so on until all lots have closed out at about 9:15pm, over 2 hours after the auction first started to close. If you or anybody else bids within the final 2 minutes of the close on any given lot, the bidding will automatically extend for another 2 minutes to allow other bidders to place a counter bid. This will continue until there is no further bidding activity within a 2 minute time frame. This is by design and that's what makes it a true auction. If you want to be the successful high bidder then you have to be the person who is willing to bid the highest; it's not possible to "snipe" the bid. If you have any questions at all, please call me, I'm happy to explain it.
Bidding Tips When you click on the bid bar, (and then click again to "confirm bid") you are placing a bid for the next automatic increment. If you click on the down arrow on the right side of the bar you can select from Create Maxbid which will let the computer automatically place your bids for you up to, but not past, the amount you enter. This works like the live auction absentee bid and is entirely automatic after you place you maximum bid.
COIN BUYERS! If you are previously unknown to us we may require payment by wire transfer only, prior to pick up or shipping. Not sure? Call!
If you have questions, ASK!

There is one other example known and it is also currently residing under my roof. For many years it graced the backbar of a well known and popular West Bend establishment where I tried, unsuccessfully, to buy it from the owner. To his credit, he refused my offers as it was gifted to him and reselling it would be classless. He eventually closed his bar and the sign was placed in a box and set on a windowsill at his house. Where his cat decided it would look better on the floor. So now I have the Gillco frame and several dozen pieces of the lens. What's left of it will be sold at a future auction.

Convex ROG Lithia Beer On Tap glass lens
One of two currently known to exist. Several years ago, in my late father's personal effects, I found a Polaroid photograph of one of these signs taken on a 1970's shag rug. I had never seen, nor heard, of this sign before and by the time I found the photo, my dad had passed. When I hung this for display several month ago a man came up and asked if I knew the story behind it. I did not, but was all ears. Here's the story...
In the late 60's, Lithia tore out a brick wall on the back of the brewery to replace some equipment. This man was in high school at the time and he and a buddy were horsing around by the river and decided to explore the construction area. When the brick wall was pulled down, it fell on top of a wooden storage shed and pretty much destroyed it, including a wooden crate that held 6 of these signs. Four were demolished and two were intact. Two boys - two signs. Do the math. The man telling me the story sold his sign about a week later to Ralph. I asked what happened to the other sign. He said he had no idea but he'd call his buddy and ask him. The following day he called me back and said that his buddy also sold his sign to Ralph about two weeks later. Ralph didn't need two signs so he sold one off to another collector who still has it to this day. So there you have it. The two discolored spots shown in the photos are where rubber spacers are adhered to the back side of the glass, apparently as part of the manufacturing process or relevant to how the lens was intended to be mounted. Because there are no known images of this sign in use its intended frame or manner of display are unknown. It's a fairly stout piece of glass. About 24"dia. not including the oak frame.

A product of the William G. Jung Brewing Co. Random Lake, WI not to be confused with Phillip Jung Brewing of Milwaukee. This is identical to, but is not the same light that we sold about 3 years ago.

224
7 Modern and/or Reproduction Signs
One of the great things about this collection is that the Buddenhagens had largely stopped collecting by the time reproductions had become the scourge that they are. They didn't have any kids so I'm not sure why they had the no whining pin-back button.

Old Sleepy Eye Blue and White Mug

229
Bowey's Old Style Root Beer Porcelain Barrel Sign.
There's something about this sign that just draws people in. While it was on display it got as many comments as some of the bigger ticket beer signs. An unfortunate chip above the letter "S", but otherwise not too bad. I believe the "creamy or solid" refers to the liquid, (bottled) form or the solid form of extract for making your own. The sign would have originally been mounted on a barrel tapper. No barrel is part of this lot or this auction

Monarch Range Parking Lot Porcelain Sign
One glance at the lettering tells you exactly where this sign was made. At the Monarch plant in Beaver Dam, WI. The lettering is the exact same color as the interior of an old school stove. And when all you do is make porcelain coated appliances, it's not much of a leap to make your own signs. 26 x 14

252
Drink Lithia Beer Die Stamped Steel Sign.
Like almost every one that you see it looks like it just left the factory. That's because in 1972 when they closed the brewery my dad asked Chuck Walters if they had any old signs kicking around. Chuck said they did. So among other things, Dad dragged home a huge stack of these still in wax paper. With clean, bold graphics and colors they never go out of favor. 24 x 18

No damage.

268
Drink Lithia Beer framed print
How could you disagree with a women who makes such a persuasive argument? I'm going out on a limb here, but not by much, to say that this was probably trimmed off of a wartime calendar. It's a stock image and when you hold it right you can see how the advertising was applied by silk screen. A bend in the lower right but it doesn't jump right out at you. Just a great image. I would think this would be a "must have" for any serious collector. 16 x 21 OA

558

West Bend Old Timer's Lager ROG lighted back bar sign
This sign is nearly impossible to find with the paint intact. Most of them are missing 50% or more of the paint decoration. Although this does have some lifting, there is no paint loss. 15 x 11 x 5

559

541
West Bend Lithia Beverages Prohibition era double sided flange sign
It has a dent, it has some bends, it has some surface issues, but it still looks pretty good. 18 x 13.5

IF YOU READ NOTHING ELSE, READ THIS!
This is a timed closing auction. Not every item ends exactly at 7:00pm on 9/8. Starting at 7:00pm, the first 4 lots will start to close. At 7:01 the next 3 lots will start to close. At 7:02 3 more lots will start to close and so on until all lots have closed out at about 9:15pm, over 2 hours after the auction first started to close. If you or anybody else bids within the final 2 minutes of the close on any given lot, the bidding will automatically extend for another 2 minutes to allow other bidders to place a counter bid. This will continue until there is no further bidding activity within a 2 minute time frame. This is by design and that's what makes it a true auction. If you want to be the successful high bidder then you have to be the person who is willing to bid the highest; it's not possible to "snipe" the bid. If you have any questions at all, please call me, I'm happy to explain it.
Bidding Tips When you click on the bid bar, (and then click again to "confirm bid") you are placing a bid for the next automatic increment. If you click on the down arrow on the right side of the bar you can select from Create Maxbid which will let the computer automatically place your bids for you up to, but not past, the amount you enter. This works like the live auction absentee bid and is entirely automatic after you place you maximum bid.
COIN BUYERS! If you are previously unknown to us we may require payment by wire transfer only, prior to pick up or shipping. Not sure? Call!
If you have questions, ASK!

There is one other example known and it is also currently residing under my roof. For many years it graced the backbar of a well known and popular West Bend establishment where I tried, unsuccessfully, to buy it from the owner. To his credit, he refused my offers as it was gifted to him and reselling it would be classless. He eventually closed his bar and the sign was placed in a box and set on a windowsill at his house. Where his cat decided it would look better on the floor. So now I have the Gillco frame and several dozen pieces of the lens. What's left of it will be sold at a future auction.

Convex ROG Lithia Beer On Tap glass lens
One of two currently known to exist. Several years ago, in my late father's personal effects, I found a Polaroid photograph of one of these signs taken on a 1970's shag rug. I had never seen, nor heard, of this sign before and by the time I found the photo, my dad had passed. When I hung this for display several month ago a man came up and asked if I knew the story behind it. I did not, but was all ears. Here's the story...
In the late 60's, Lithia tore out a brick wall on the back of the brewery to replace some equipment. This man was in high school at the time and he and a buddy were horsing around by the river and decided to explore the construction area. When the brick wall was pulled down, it fell on top of a wooden storage shed and pretty much destroyed it, including a wooden crate that held 6 of these signs. Four were demolished and two were intact. Two boys - two signs. Do the math. The man telling me the story sold his sign about a week later to Ralph. I asked what happened to the other sign. He said he had no idea but he'd call his buddy and ask him. The following day he called me back and said that his buddy also sold his sign to Ralph about two weeks later. Ralph didn't need two signs so he sold one off to another collector who still has it to this day. So there you have it. The two discolored spots shown in the photos are where rubber spacers are adhered to the back side of the glass, apparently as part of the manufacturing process or relevant to how the lens was intended to be mounted. Because there are no known images of this sign in use its intended frame or manner of display are unknown. It's a fairly stout piece of glass. About 24"dia. not including the oak frame.

224
7 Modern and/or Reproduction Signs
One of the great things about this collection is that the Buddenhagens had largely stopped collecting by the time reproductions had become the scourge that they are. They didn't have any kids so I'm not sure why they had the no whining pin-back button.

Old Sleepy Eye Blue and White Mug

229
Bowey's Old Style Root Beer Porcelain Barrel Sign.
There's something about this sign that just draws people in. While it was on display it got as many comments as some of the bigger ticket beer signs. An unfortunate chip above the letter "S", but otherwise not too bad. I believe the "creamy or solid" refers to the liquid, (bottled) form or the solid form of extract for making your own. The sign would have originally been mounted on a barrel tapper. No barrel is part of this lot or this auction

Monarch Range Parking Lot Porcelain Sign
One glance at the lettering tells you exactly where this sign was made. At the Monarch plant in Beaver Dam, WI. The lettering is the exact same color as the interior of an old school stove. And when all you do is make porcelain coated appliances, it's not much of a leap to make your own signs. 26 x 14

Rust at upper left and middle right but not too serious. 24 x 8.

252
Drink Lithia Beer Die Stamped Steel Sign.
Like almost every one that you see it looks like it just left the factory. That's because in 1972 when they closed the brewery my dad asked Chuck Walters if they had any old signs kicking around. Chuck said they did. So among other things, Dad dragged home a huge stack of these still in wax paper. With clean, bold graphics and colors they never go out of favor. 24 x 18

Semon's Fair Store Athens WI Red Wing Beater Jar w/Red Wing Advertising on Reverse
No damage.

268
Drink Lithia Beer framed print
How could you disagree with a women who makes such a persuasive argument? I'm going out on a limb here, but not by much, to say that this was probably trimmed off of a wartime calendar. It's a stock image and when you hold it right you can see how the advertising was applied by silk screen. A bend in the lower right but it doesn't jump right out at you. Just a great image. I would think this would be a "must have" for any serious collector. 16 x 21 OA
