Coca-Cola carriers range from wooden crates meant to hold a dozen or more bottles to metal and cardboard carriers designed for six-packs. Some completely cardboard carriers from the 1930s feature the Coca-Cola logo at the top with Art Deco styling below, while others have wire handles and wood grips. In addition to wooden crates, Coca-Cola also made wooden carriers for six-packs, sometimes out of planks of wood but in some cases made of bent veneers. Aluminum carriers from the 1950s came with wire handles, with or without wood grips, and are often embossed with the Coca-Cola logo on their widest sides.
