Recently acquired this 1930's Coca-Cola printed umbrella. These were giveaways to farmers and cart vendors to help shield them from weather and of course promote drinking of the Delicious and Refreshing soda pop.
Not an easy piece to display open...and I think that's bad luck anyway! So I have it leaning, closed, next to the Coke Cave fireplace. I spritzed it with wrinkle releaser, patiently pleating by hand to maximize visual on logo and slogan. The things we do.
Happy Thanksgiving, Dear Collectors!
