This collection features vintage premiums from the long-standing CENTURY INN in Cincinnati, Ohio. The restaurant which opened as a popular inn and carriage stop in 1806, has been open for more than two centuries and still operates today.

CENTURY INN was known for its popular community clambakes, for which these premiums may have been given away. Items include

  • GLASS TUMBLER imprinted on one side with the early Century Inn logo, a drawing of the black pot-belly stove that sat in the center of the tavern's bar for nearly two centuries. The imprint on the back lists the owners' names from 1800 to 1978. The tumbler is 5 ¼” and should hold 12-ounces of liquid. 
  • PLASTIC BEVERAGE ADVERTISING COASTERS made by Tagmaster with original boxes.  The listing includes a total of four coasters, measuring approximately 3 ½” square—two blue, one red and one lime green, packaged in decorative cardboard outer sleeves. 
  • SAMURAI KATANA SWORD LETTER OPENER & HAND PAINTED WOOD SHEATH made in Japan. The wood sheath is engraved, Century Inn Since 1806, and the stainless steel blade is engraved, Stainless Steel Japan. On the end of the handle is a tassel. Circa 1950s.
  • PLASTIC KEY CHAIN stamped Century Inn Since 1806 with the logo drawing of the pot belly stove. Key chain is still in the original plastic bag.

Great piece of restaurant memorabilia and Cincinnati history.
