from George at Bahoukas Antique Mall

This unique piece recently arrived at our shop. The label on this 16mm film says “National Beer Sports Film” and also “Orioles in Action” with the number “Harco 603.” Also on the label is: “from Chesapeake Bay … Land of Pleasant Living.” It was created by WLVA radio station and is dated Sept. 29, 1961!

We are not sure if it’s an entire game or a series of highlights. If someone doesn’t grab this very unique piece, George may try to find a working 16mm film projector to check it out.

For those who love old films, National Beer, and/or the Orioles of 1961 – it’s a great piece! Don’t forget that we’re less than 5 weeks from Christmas. This would make a beer collector drool!

While you’re at it, here’s a link to GREAT WAYS TO CELEBRATE INTERNATIONAL BEER DAY!

We have at least 10 beer mats at Bahoukas Beer MuZeum.

Tegestologists

If you collect brewmania, you might know what this word is:

Tegestologists have a great excuse to spend time in bars since they collect coasters or beermats. They should probably team up with labeorphilists, or collectors of beer bottles.

from MentalFloss.com
Sampling of beer coasters.

We have thousands of beer coasters. Are you a TEGESTOLOGIST? Stop in and view our collection. We might add, that it’s hot upstairs where our Bahoukas Beer MuZeum is located.

“Help” – the Beatles…

… is this beer can legit?

hmmm… legit? We’re not sure!

This unique beer can found its way to our store recently. We’ve done lots of searching, but can’t find any certification.

Beer can “A Tribute to the BEATLES”

The can says:

A Tribute to the BEATLES
LIMITED COLLECTOR’S EDITION
Contents 12 Fl. Oz.

What do you think?

This side says:

“HELP” Brewing Company
Liverpool, England

So we’re curious. We’ve been searching, but haven’t found a definitive answer. But, since there aren’t many out there, it might be a great collectible and ‘conversation piece.’ Always fun.

Stop in during a great weekend that includes First Friday and the Wine, Art & Jazz Festival on Saturday. Of course, we’ll be watchin’ for ya!

mid-century modern metlox poppytrail dinnerware pieces available at Bahoukas AntiquesMid-Century Modern California Pottery

These beautiful pieces of Metlox Poppytrail include a butter dish, pitcher, creamer, sugar, and 2 different sizes of serving platters.

… the company expanded into dinnerware and began in 1932 to produce the “200 Series” line of dinnerware. This line was also called “Poppytrail.” The company garnered a great deal of positive response due to offering this dinnerware line.   __replacements.com

__from Wikipedia

The first line of pottery produced, “Poppytrail,” became well known for its brightly colored glazes derived from locally mined metallic oxides. Subsequent lines included “Nostalgia,” “Red Rooster,” “California Provincial,” “Colonial Homestead,” “Homestead Provincial,” and “Colorstax.”

In the 1950s Metlox introduced a line of modernist dinnerware featuring free form designs and squared plates using “blanks” that were then decorated with designs and colors. These were then marketed under the pattern names of “California Contempra”, “California Modern” and “California Freeform” names.

The company operated from 1927 until 1989.
