Comments: I believe this is the nicer of the two National Western theme trays. Unfortunately, this one has a very small nail hole at the very top, but other than that it is in awesome condition. Some collectors would never even think of having a tray in their collection with a nail hole in it, however when you find a litho in this nice of condition, you might want to not worry about a small hole too much. The tray indicates the picture was Copyrighted in 1903 by Louis Roesch, Lithographers, S.F. I am not sure if they are the manufacturers of the tray, however I see no other marking indicating manufacturer. It is also signed at approximately 4 o'clock - H.W. Hansen - I am wondering if this is the artist or the owner of the brewerey as according to American Breweries II, from 1861 to 1884 to brewery was called National Brewery - Hansen Family. Hmmh??? If you know any more, drop me an e-mail.
