SHOP IN YOUR SOCKS – DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR. RARE 1973 New In Box SCHLITZ Beer. Lighted GLOBE Draught Stanchion Cover W/Tap Handle – Quality. This box was opened and had a ripped off flap on the top when I acquired it – I checked to make sure it was all there (even the original plastic bag for the main unit) and put it away for the last two decades. Now I remember that it had its original directions but I hate to admit I misplaced them at some point. The only thing I did with this unit was take it out to picture it and make sure it works and then re-package it. The other box/unit was NEVER opened and will also be offered for sale. I asked a friend why you don’t see these up for sale and the reply was they were made out of plastic and they where used in a comercial setting that got them beatup and abused on anygiven day. These didn’t sit on the backbar – mount too the wall or hang from the cieling like most lighted high end beer advertising – they were the front line in the bars and pubs and if they were put into service they probably only lasted a few years in the best of circumstances and then discarded! From a 2008 Newspaper Article in Milwaukee about the Grand Baroque Collection…. Milwaukee area bar patrons can expect to locate the new beer by looking for the Golden Classic Tap Knob. ” According to the statement, “The tap is part of the’Grand Baroque Collection,’ an iconic symbol of Schlitz. The Grand Baroque Collection was the most ornate and highest quality point of sale materials ever released by the brewery. The unit stands about 19″ tall – 5-1/4″ across the base. There are four pair of surrounds that I would think would work for most stanchion’s & spigots (see photos) The tap handle (for your spigot) has a threaded hole that I think is 3/8″ and is about 2-7/8″ long/tall. Condition is ” Unused ” – Over All condition is excellent/minty with no issues of note to report.
