This week’s featured design from Zenith City Press’s line of vintage reproduction art is an advertisement for Silver Spray sparkling beverage. Produced by the Fitger Company during Prohibition, Silver Spray was a nationally popular non-alcoholic, carbonated beverage made from catawba grapes and designed to mix well with bathtub gin and bootleg whiskey—hence the tag line “The Best Mixer in the Crowd.” During Prohibition Fitger’s made and sold near-beer, soda, and candy and even distributed cigars—but it was Silver Spray that truly saved the day and kept Fitger’s alive until Prohibition was repealed.
This design is available as a print (framed or unframed on canvas, art paper, metal, acrylic, or wood), greeting cards, throw pillows, shower curtains, tote bags, blank notebooks, fleece blankets, coffee mugs, and puzzles.
