SHOP IN YOUR SOCKS – DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR. Never opened until now! RARE 1973 New In Box SCHLITZ Lighted Globe BEER TOWER COVER Tap Handle Kegerator – QUALITY. This box was never opened when I acquired it. 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. Because I had pictures from the first unit everything is is still sealed or secured as it was sent from factory i. 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 commercial setting that got them beat-up and abused on any-given day. These didn’t sit on the back bar – mount too the wall or hang from the ceiling 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 beer towers and their spigots/faucets (see photos) The tap handle (for your spigot/faucet) has a threaded hole that I think is the standard 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. Hello , I did some research for you last night and this morning so I could answer your questions better. First as stated in the ad the unit is plastic as are most advertising pieces of this size and time period. You’ll come up with an example – fourth or fifth one with a single spigot/faucet that this was designed to cover. This would also work with most modern “Kegerator” home draft systems with a single spigot/faucet. Look at the “box” and the beer tower and I hope it will become clear. Hope this helps , Frank.
