  2. thanks for your comment and love, the green and blue caps were made for Belgium with the name of the city were they were bottled ( Bruxelles, Brugge, Roeselare, St Truiden, Barchon) the seller had oth...
  3. too bad the top has been cut, on you other picture I see another one with the top part still there, are the other ones in better condition ?
  4. not brand new, there would never been anything like that in the past, they had taste and this thing is horrible, why not making just a good paint instead of applying dozen of decals which have no mean...
  5. it's not an old sign but a fantasy sign from the 1990's worth around 5 $ not more, they were made to be sold in gift shop, before buying signs be sure to have the petretti's 12th edition of coca cola ...
  6. I don't know much about bottle but the label looks too clean for me if it was from early 1900, I have experimented that old paper use to be really crispy and fragile when it's over 100 years old, as t...

  15. thanks for the comment, what is great about this poster is that I first saw it 3 years ago in a huge flea markets but I didn't have the budget for and I didn't see the seller for 3 years and 2 weeks a...
  16. I finally opted for a complete removal of the paint with polishing the metal parts and it's exactly the result I was looking for
  17. the paint was badly damaged by the years so I decided to go scrub the old paint of the face and polish it so now it's really shiny, I'm really pleased with the result which give a cleaner look pict...
  18. great find under your house, I hope you saved it and put on the wall of your house, that's a great story behind the item for a collector
  19. they are separate, there is a like a patella on the feet brass that allow the chair to get really steady, I've added 2 pictures of the feet on pictures 3 & 4, it's a brass part with a plastic part for...

  27. that's not 500 $ value at all for this, drive in speaker were never been painted, they were aluminium polished on a base like this : http://www.sweetsofas.com/images/Drive_In_movie_speaker_with_red_li...
  28. hum... it's a made up item, worth nothing, this lamp was made with a new stand, 2 drive-in speaker, a new light shade, a tons of coca cola stickers and a bad taste. I hope you didn't paid too much fo...

  32. I missed one this year in brussels as I thought it was too expensive, the guy wanted 140 € for it, do you think I could find one for less than that ? I'll go to the next coca cola trade show in Essen ...
  33. Thanks for the comment, apparently this one is not a common one and quite difficult to find, there is also a russian radio, the Zvezda-54 made in 1954 which is a perfect copy of this one but in differ...
