  1. Thanks Bern!
  2. "Only 40" of these made.
  3. Yep there's not really a market for new high quality Coca-Cola collectibles. It's either serious collectors who go after the old stuff or decorative/novelty collectors who go for cheap stuff. Nice p...
  4. Yes you're right, it's a knock-off. Logo and slogan are decals.
  5. Thank you Chad. Framer did a nice job. They seemed amused that I had mock up pics and specific instructions on dimensions of frame and matte. The only thing they couldn't do was cut the matte to ke...
  6. Thanks CK, I'm with you, a little time capsule with enough imagination.
  7. Looks like a 40's Half Junior.
  8. The gold logos show a circle immediately to the right of Coca-Cola. That's a 90's or later registered symbol. Coca-Cola sells licensing rights to manufacturers who slap the brand on just about anyth...
  9. If you notice the other logos have circle R trademark, dates to 1990's or later.
  10. You've got plenty of wall space, hang it! :0)
  11. The original image is from 1901 advertising, referred to as "Girl with Yellow Roses". Coca-Cola didn't put out anything like this at the time, it's a made up "fantasy" decorative piece from the 1970'...
  12. Like a long lost love found again! ;0) Looks great Michael.
  13. It's a fun novelty item but not old nor anything put out by Coca-Cola. The artistry is really creative. "Refreshing and Delicious" instead of "Delicious and Refreshing". Nude woman (Asa Candler is ...
  14. What a beauty. Hang that sucker!
  15. Your comments are always appreciated Bernie, thanks!
  17. Thank you Miss Mani!
  18. Thanks Sean very much.
  19. Thank you Sir!
  20. Beautiful items and very interesting detail Mani!
  21. Looks good to me.
  22. The Flapper Girl tray repro is easy to spot with that bottle lower right corner. No bottle on the original.
  23. Your suspicion is correct.
  24. At least one other out there.
  25. My favorite of your recent posts. Though I am partial to signs. Nice one!
  26. Lots of great buys CK, some sweet pieces!
  27. Thanks CK, and a good size to shoehorn in somewhere! Looking forward to seeing another great post from you.
  28. Thank you Bernie!
  29. You have a nose for the incredible finds Michael, most of us must.. resist...must resist... ;0) Thanks hope you have a great weekend!
  30. Market and value are of the decorative variety.
  31. This and your other sign are contemporary reproductions. One similar was posted last week:
  32. Not a lot of info here beyond identification, but a starting point:
  33. This is an authentic tray from 1920, "Golfer Girl". Condition is rough, but it's The Real Thing. Here's a tray similar condition to give you an idea of approximate value.
  34. Correction to above. I ran across a listing for these shelving rolls, which described them as placed between layers of floor stacked six packs to stabilize. So they actually are the shelves, in effe...
  35. Listed in Petretti's guide as 1945-1947 with value for a near mint example 150 USD. Condition of blotters is very important to collectors, so I'd say knock 50%-75% off book price to be realistic.
  36. Here's one roughly same size.
  37. I look at a lot of eBay listings! ;0) Your glass is nicer condition.
  39. More like 70's with that dynamic ribbon logo. It's a 6-pack rack system, missing shelves. The rolls are shelf liners that would retract as the cartons were removed.
  40. Thanks Henry. The c. 1910 banner is cloth. I've seen them referred to as oilcloth or canvas. This one is a 3/4 partial, approx 3' removed. I often wondered about what was printed on the missing p...
  41. I know cola syrup long has long been used as an over the counter remedy for upset stomach. Common to see old bottles listed on eBay, I'm guessing many are found cleaning out medicine cabinets. They ...
  42. Thank you Sir Kerry, hope it's going good. I've been enjoying your timepiece posts. Lots of keepers there as well.
  43. You too Bernie and Thanks!
  44. Thank you Jim, hope you have a good weekend.
  45. Thanks fleafinder!
  46. Thank you Manikin, you are kind to say so. LOL EJW, you know!
  47. Thanks CK, seemed to look best that way.
  48. I think the sign has the same value no matter. It has a lot going for it. The damage hurts value most. If it is "rare", that certainly helps.
  49. Yes, a beautiful cardboard insert. These were usually displayed in a standard gold painted wood frame and changed out monthly or seasonally by the vendor. I flipped through a few books but could not...
  50. 1967 "world dish".
