Here is my Late 1800's Leaded Glass Shade four head Soda Fountain. It has a Coca-Cola tag on it but may have been added later. Still has the old gold bulbs in it (one just stop working) . The thing is heavy! LOL I need a few of the soda tips but complete otherwise. Thanks for looking!

    It's definetly different! What went on top where the lamp shade is? I would try and restore this back to it's glory!

    That's it... a lamp shade! Look up the Coca- Cola Worlds Fair Soda Fountain that sold at the Coca-Cola museum here in Kentucky a month or so ago. The one that brought 4.2 million ....Yes $4.2 million (i may be off a hundred grand or so) It has two of these setting on the counter......Very cool piece....I guess it should be for that price....

    4.5 million that must have been in some fancy hotel or something, that thing is huge you would need a large man cave for that

    Cool Item. I agree, Rustologist, the Coca-Cola name plate looks out of place. Judging by the logo it appears to be 70's or later. Are you thinking the brass name plate might be original to manufacture, indicating reproduction or fantasy piece?

    If this piece is as old as the ones made for the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, did they use that logo that early?

    The fountain is definitely old but the name plate was added later. These are pretty rare, (from what i gather) besides the two on the high dollar fountain that sold i've only seen them on old Coca-cola advertising and a few old photos. Thanks all....

    Geez, why somebody would screw a newer Coca-Cola nameplate into such an old fountain lamp is beyond me. Musta been a crazy person!
