Blatz Beer Baseball Players.  Has the correct flags that most pieces are missing and takes away from their value. The bottleman, the barrelman and the canman at their finest.
CAST IRON BLATZ BEER ADVERTISING ITEM measuring 12" x 7" - Colorfully Painted figure of a Man with a "Beer Barrel Body" marked BLATZ. He sits on a Stool with legs which are threaded on both ends that can be removed so he can become a Shelf-Sitter. He seems to be singing a lively tune perhaps "Roll Out The Barrel" while playing the Banjo.

Free Standing, CAST IRON BLATZ BEER ADVERTISING SIGN measuring 10 1/2" x 10 1/2" - Colorfully Painted figure of a Man with a "Beer Barrel Body" marked BLATZ - he stands with arm raised offering a Mug of Beer. Attached 1 1/2" plastic strip across top of sign reads Blatz (in red letters) Beer. Slogan reads "We Serve The Finest People Everyday" - across the bottom reads "At Local prices". Clear tape label on back reads Brewed at Milwaukee, Peoria Heights, Los Angeles, Newark - Blatz Brewing Co.
OLD METAL BLATZ BANJO PLAYING BEER MAN BAR DISPLAY. THIS METAL DISPLAY MEASURES ABOUT 17" TALL, 9 1/2" WIDE AND 6 1/2" DEEP. THE HOLLOW CAST METAL BLATZ BEER MAN IS ABOUT 11 1/2" TALL. THE DISPLAY BOTTLE IS A REGULAR SIZE GLASS BEER BOTTLE. THE DISPLAY READS "BLATZ - IT'S DRAFT BREWED - PASTEURIZED - I'M FROM MILWAUKEE".  THIS IS A HEAVY DISPLAY WEIGHING ABOUT 7 POUNDS.

Total unit stands about 17-1/2 inches from base to top of tall bottleman's hat! The base is about 15 inches long and 5 inches wide. The two men are 3 dimensional and made from hard plastic. The cane on the tall guy is on his arm and does fit into hole in his hand. Electric two prong cord

Editor's Note: Were there two versions? The other with the figures holding Blatz flags or is this one an attempt to cover for the missing flags? Actually this version is missing a third cane and the two flags missing from each hand.

This is a 12 1/2"L x 15 1/2"H, Cast Aluminum, statue sign called Milwaukee, Blatz On Draft. It is a HEAVY, 3D piece, designed at all angles. It looks as it is from the 1950's [ 1960's]. The little barrel is made of wood, but don't think it belongs.
