This is one of the great pieces of advertising and sports memorabilia combined. A ceramic figural baseball syrup dispenser designed in the shape of a baseball with an image of a bat, the seams of the ball are in relief and painted gold. One of the most attractive baseball figural pieces ever produced, this porcelain syrup dispenser is a classic piece and exceptionally rare. Large lettering in an off red, with illustration of a baseball bat appearing directly below. The slogan, "Drink of the 'Fans,'" appears on the bottom panel of the "ball," while the circular base proclaims the fact that Fan-Taz is "A Pennant Winner." The price of the drink, "5 cents," appears on either side of the piece. The pump features the name "Fan-Taz" on top. Porcelain dispensers such as these were found in drugstores, general stores, and ice cream parlors during the early 1900s. The pump on top would dispense the sweet syrup, add seltzer or bubbled water for the customer. The dispenser has been retouched and displays beautifully. Also included are five original Fan-Taz advertisements that have been framed.
