    I recently purchased this ice chest but, I am not able to find out who the manufacture is nor have I seen another like it. I presume that it is quite old by the trade mark but, I do not know its age. This is my new favorite piece in my collection and I would like to find out as much as I can about it. Therefore, I would like to reach out to the Coca Cola community to see if anyone can provide me with some additional information.

      Very nice early cooler, sorry I can't help with the manufacturer, but it looks to be 1930'S

      Looks like it could be a Glascock but I've never seen that color scheme before. No markings, does it look like it was refinished? Pictures of the other sides, inside, underside might help the pro's. Maybe Toolbox knows.

      I dont think its a Glascock cooler, the trade mark looks like it was made in Canada. Your cooler looks very similar to mine ( http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/93068-late-20s-early-30s-canadian-coca-cola ) but a newer version, late 1930's possibly. Do you live in Canada? I think this is a St. Thomas cooler, check the bottom of the signs, they should have name on atleast one of them. You maybe having trouble finding this cooler if its Canadian, most the Canadian coolers are not listed in guides. Your cooler used the same bottle opener and cap catcher as mine, very common to find them missing hard to replace them with originals.

      Makes sense and with that member name sounds like a good chance this item is in Canada.

      Thanks for the information, I am actually in the northeast US therefore, I would not be surprised if it is Canadian. I have looked on all sides and under it but, I have not found any manufactures identifying marks. The underside of the cooler is made out of wood. I am very glad that I found this site and I appreciate your feedback.

      Try cleaning the signs, somewhere along the bottom of the signs there should be a manufactures name, most likely St. Thomas. The underside of my cooler is also made of wood. Your cooler appears to be an original, so im sure its got a manufactures name somewhere on it.

      I just recently found one of these for sale close to me and I am considering buying it but its the French version not English, which confirms this is a Canadian cooler. Canada made English and French coolers, so thats prob why you have had hard time finding this cooler in guides. I was wondering if you dont mind me asking, how much you paid for your cooler? Im thinking about buying the French version but unsure of how much the English ones go for. I was hoping you would let me know how much you paid for yours so I could get a good idea of what to pay for the French one.
