Kuntz Park Brewery, formerly known as Spring Brewery, was founded in 1844 by David Kuntz and his son, Louis Kuntz. A pioneer brewer, the elder Kuntz helped establish Waterloo as a center for quality beer making. By 1910, the company became Ontario’s second-largest brewery. The upcoming Toys, Advertising, & Historic Objects sale, presented by Miller & Miller Auctions Ltd., will feature a beer tray from Kuntz. This lithograph tin tray features a Saint Bernard dog behind a bottle of Kuntz’s Special Export Lager.
Another highlight of the auction is a Coca-Cola policeman sign that was first produced in the 1950s for school crossings. The Coke Cop sign features a smiling crossing guard with one hand raised and the other hand holding a yellow shield sign reading “Slow School Zone.” Also available in the sale is a toy “Pumper No. 7” steel fire truck. Made in the 1930s, the Pumper No. 7 was modeled after a 1927 LaFrance fire truck. View these items and register to bid online on Miller & Miller Auctions Ltd.
