Coca-Cola Vendo D-56 Decorator Series

Coca-Cola has always done a great job getting their products into as many locations as possible. The Vendo D-56 was an attempt to get Coke into locations where a soda machine might be out of place, like an upscale office. The D-56 was basically a soda machine with a decorative door on the front. The doors were offered in five styles; warm and exciting Mediterranean, bold and sleek Danish, sculptured and classic Provincial, light and charming Colonial and crisp and trim Traditional. I don’t think the concept really took off, but it was an interesting idea. Coca-Cola offered many smaller machines for low volume situations over the years and we will be posting others soon.

    I have purchased a coco cola platter that has a lady in the center with halloween, skiing, football, man walking dog. The lady on the front looks like Lucy Ball. Can you tell the year that the was made and how much it is worth today?
