Friend was cleaning out a old building and came accross this gem. We talked about it and he brought it to me. Don't know much about it. How many years was the Glascock Jr made? The plate gives a date (March 4, 1930) and the Pat. #. Was it made in 1930?

    What you have is a Glascock Junior. It was made around 1932 for smaller stores that didn't have much floor space or areas that didn't have much consumer traffic. It held 36 bottles and about 25 lbs of ice. It was half the capacity of the Standard Glascock which held 72 bottles. It was offered in 2 models and indoor and an outdoor all weather model. Original side panels in good condition are hard to come by, but in the late 70's someone made bootleg copies for people that restore the coolers. They can be found on ebay from time to time. Its a neat little cooler but worth very little in this non-collectable condition. If restored it ouwld be worth about 1,000 to maybe $1,400 on a good day.

    I just picked up a Glascock with Coca Cola Cooler-but no 1930's or any date just Patent Applied For. The seller insists that it was her Grandmothers who had a store at the turn of the 2oth century and it had to be pre 1908. It has the red green pattern paint scheme(under some brown coat that someone added) which will be stripped. But what's interesting is that it has a Tap in Front (above Coca Cola name), a Coiled pipe inside and a tail end pipe (Below Coca Cola name) which would appear to go to a source. It also has a drain on the bottom of the unit going straight down with a valve. She said that it was an ice chest and I'm guessing that the product would be cooled as it passed through the coiled pipe in this ice bath. I haven't seen any similar example and I wondering if the tap was a later addition or a prohibition era jerry rig. I'm assuming the Patent Applied For under the Coca Cola Cooler places it earlier than the 1920's models so maybe the old lady was accurate. The bottom is basically open with one cross support. Any info would be greatly appreciated as I'd like to restore it accurately.
    Thanks,
    Cliff

    Say Cliff!
    Did you ever discover any information about your Glascock cooler?
    I too was wondering about something from the Prohibition era. To disguise the real identity of the drink being cooled!!
