This is a very unique looking dispenser. It is a juice dispenser made by the Simplex Manufacturing Company for the Mission Dry Corporation of Los Angeles, California, makers of Mission Orangeade. This Art Deco style model was called the Model H Simplex Dispenser and was constructed of metal for both the body and the footed base.
The spigot is positioned on the back of the dispenser so the stylized front with the great oranges on top would have faced the customers as the drink was poured. It’s a very striking dispenser and must have been very a successful point-of-purchase display promoting Mission’s “Real fruit juice” drink.
Dimensions: 33”H x 16”W
