1930s Gertner Soda Bottle Vending Machine

This is an illustration of a unique soda vending machine from the 1930s. This vendor was built by Gertner Manufacturing Company about 1932. It was a unique machine for the time in that it required two nickels to get a bottle of soda. One nickel was to pay for the soda and the other was a deposit on the bottle. Once the two nickels were inserted into the machine, a bottle of soda was dispensed. One of the nickels was returned to the customer once the empty bottle was placed into the drawer in the lower part of the machine. This drawer was opened using the crank handle.

The dimensions for this vendor were 69”H x 23”D x 31”W. It weighed 380 lbs.

Have you ever seen one of these? We’d love to hear from you if you have any additional information to share about this unique machine.
