Renner Brewing Company “Employee Entrance” Reverse Painted Glass Sign Youngstown's longest operating brewery was founded in early 1865 by Philip Schuh (also spelled Schub, Schule) and John Bayer, two German immigrants. Bayer had sold his share to Schuh by the end of the year, however, and continued to run his nearby saloon. Matthias Seeger (also known as Martin Sager, Segur, and Seiger in various listings), a native of Wurtemburg, Germany, born in 1835, assumed brewing operations in 1869, assisted by Englishman Daniel Perkins, after which the plant was known as the City Brewery. Also owning a part of the brewery at this time was Christian Genkinger (also spelled Cenkaner), who owned a brewery in New Castle, PA., twenty miles to the east. He sold his interest to Seeger in 1874. This really cool sign is made from antique jealousy glass and is reverse hand painted. Great for the collector and neat decor. Measures about 30" by 4" and about 1/4" thick. These Black and Gold custom signs have become rare to find these days. If you’re decorating or designing in different spaces, these signs can add a lot of character. This is made of old antique jealousy glass and reverse painted. It is a heavier item and we must ship it in a special box to prevent damage. It is in Great Condition but there could be some minor nicking around the sides from the cutting process I would imagine however it does not take away from the appearance. There also could be minor scratching of black which can be touched up if you desire. Displays nicely, great addition to your collection or decor! Measures 30” long x 4" tall.
