This illustration is from an old advertisement in our archives for a Coca-Cola water cooler/bottle vendor combination. Based on the Coke logo and the styling of the unit, it most likely dates from about 1920 to 1930. This innovative vendor is a water cooler with a cooling box to hold bottles of Coca-Cola. It’s really a clever marketing piece, since even if you prefer a cup of water, the Coca-Cola ad and the tempting cold bottles are right there, promoting the soft drink product. This stand was probably designed for use in an office.
Produced: 1920 to 1930
