Mint Museum of Toys launched the ‘Guinness by the Decades’ Exhibition in conjunction with Guinness Arthur’s Day, a global celebration happening in Singapore for the second year running. The Exhibition features a collection with close to a century of history, consisting of more than fifty unique premiums and advertising materials dating as far back as the 1900s.
Hence, from miniature and stoneware beer bottles to quirky metal showcards, the items were acquired over a period of more than 30 years, from both local and overseas dealers as well as through auctions and private sales.
Likewise, other exhibits also include porcelain coin-banks in the shape of the red-tongued Alsatian dog meant for the Singaporean market, the Bulldog for the Malaysian market, and the seated cat for the Indonesian market – these representations also carrying over to other items such as vintage cups and glasses.
The ‘Guinness by the Decades’ Exhibition will run from 4th to 31st September 2013 at the Mint Museum of Toy during the Museum’s opening hours from 9.30am to 6.30pm daily. Hence, the usual admission charges to the Museum apply, with access to the Exhibition included.
