    Wanted to share some of my more unusual Coca-Cola items I have picked up from around the world. This is a small paper item (about 5") from the 1930s in Germany, most probably from early 1930s. I have never known the exact use for it - it does not seem to be part of a festoon, so it could be a label or a decal (with no adhesive attached). If anyone has any ideas please let me know - thanks!

      Is it double sided? im just guessing but i think it may be a sign you would hang from ceiling fan so you could reach the on/off switch easier.

      Thanks for your suggestion coke.trevor.cola but its only one sided and made of very thin paper (rather than cardboard). more like a label of some sort... thats why i was thinking a decal without the adhesive. Any ideas welcome

      the decal was made for a thing called "lesezirkel" which means it was pined on the extra-cover of the magazin, which was distributed in cafes, bars, hotels for many people. So the advertising wasn´t in the newsmagazin, but on the cover of the company who distributed the magazines.
      There are two version of it.
