Antique/Vintage 1920's Seeger Commercial Beer Keg Cooler Tap Bar - Art
The patent dates on this art deco influenced Seeger ice-cooled keg/tap/bar unit range from as early as 1917 to the latest date of 1928. Odd, given prohibition was in effect from 1919 to 1933.The unit measures 50"w x 25"d x 41"t.It features 2 chrome taps with round bakelite handles in a white porcelain enamel sink with drain.Above the taps is the black porcelain bar top, which includes an area to set beer mugs with spilling over heads of foam. This area includes a removable white porcelain cover with drain holes, under which is a galvanized drainage basin covered by a galvanized cover, also with drainage holes. When removed, this 2nd cover reveals the galvanized well intended to be filled with ice that would surround the internal aluminum coils through which the beer would travel and be cooled before being tapped.On either side of the sink is a door, opened to reveal a shelf for cooling mugs.Below these smaller doors are another pair of doors that access the galvanized and insulated keg compartments (2). One of the 2 latch strikes is missing.The outside of the unit is made of steel finished in a faux wood grain.A rare survivor in remarkably attractive condition.Although listed as local pick-up only, please contact me to discuss other delivery/freight/shipping options.Please check out and "like" Navy Ray's on Facebook.Thanks.
