Mexican Countertop Cooler

This countertop cooler is from Mexico. The embossing on the front and back reads “Tome Coca-Cola”, or “Drink Coca-Cola”. The manufacturer is unknown. It was probably produced in the 1950s. The design is rather unique, with the very thin, flat lid that covers the entire top of the cooler. We got this cooler in pretty poor condition and have restored it to new condition.

The first Latino countries to be given permission to bottle Coca-Cola were Cuba and Panama in 1906. Coca-Cola was first bottled in Mexico starting in 1926 and is still very popular there today.

    What a beauty, and what a restoration you have done, anyone would be very proud to call this their own. I worked as a soda jerk in the early 50’s (figuring my age?), and am a lifelong fan of the best drink in the world. Good luck with your continued work taking care of these wonderful memories.
