I found this at my Grandmas house I was trying to find some info on it but could not find a thing. I think it came from overseas in Taiwan in the 1930's but I am not really sure anybody out there a coke fan and do you know anything about this? Thank you

    The original painting was painted in 1931 and has virtually been used ever since on tins, glasses and plates. I do know that the word "Coke" wasn't used by the company until 1941, and wasn't registered until 1944. The word "brand" however, leads me to believe that this was produced by someone else, with permission from Coca Cola. Products distributed by Coca-Cola usually say "enjoy" or "drink". I could be mistaken, you might want to look into that though, it caught my eye.

    When did they start putting BRAND on things?

    I found one of these as well. Mine isnt in as great shape as yours but it's exactly the same including the 4 Men's handkerchiefs. On the back it has Coca-Cola TM Brand and talks about "The Barefoot Boy" by Rockwell in 1931. In the bottom right hand corner it says "Container Made In Taiwan Rep. of China. On the handkerchiefs there is a sticker that says "65% Polyester 35% Cotton, RN 15200, Made in Korea. I'm having trouble finding out any other info online about this tin like when it was actually made and the value of it. This is actually the only thing I ran into. Good luck and if you find anything please post it so I can figure some things out as well. :)
