This is an advertisement for several Coca-Cola coolers manufactured by the Glascock Brothers Mfg. Co. This ad is dated August 1931 and illustrates all of the Glascock coolers available at the time. There is the Standard, which was the first standardized ice box they made for the Coca-Cola Company in the late 1920s. The “Counter” cooler was the smallest and the least expensive cooler Glascock ever made, and held just 36 bottles.

1931 Coca-Cola Glascock Coolers

It’s very interesting to note the original selling prices for these Coca-Cola coolers. The prices ranged from $6.50 for the Counter cooler to $155.00 for the DeLuxe Frigidaire Complete cooler, (the first mechanical Glascock chest cooler). All Glascock coolers had replaceable side panels to display the Coca-Cola logo. And all were painted the classic Coca-Cola red and Moroccan green.

Produced: Late 1920s to Early 1930s

Manufactured by:
Glascock Bros. Manufacturing Co.
Muncie, Indiana
