Description
Amazing lithographed four panel articulating fan advertising Moerlein's National Export Beer. Stunning comic panels illustrate how Moerlein's Beer is enjoyed throughout the world.
The first shows an American straddling one of the Great Pyramids in Egypt. "It Refreshes The Traveler on top of the Great Pyramid"
The second panel has an infamous caricature of Otto von Bismarck with his beloved dog Tiran. "Bismarck Drinks No Other Brand".
The third get's a little more risque: "Mohammed Ali Enthusiastically Proclaims the Virtues of this Beer to the Favorites of his Harem" (of course running afoul of the laws of Islam on several points.
The final panel is incredible. It shows a caricature of a native Fiji Islander with a starchy Pentecostal laying prone on a plate, impaled by a 4-foot long fork and knife: "The Fiji Cannibal enjoys it with his Missionary Meal".
Stunning.
Medium weight cardboard is clean with crisp corners. Measures 5 inches high.
