Orange Crush has always been a very popular soft drink, and still is. This soda fountain dispenser was made by a manufacturer called Adco, but there is not much available out there about them. This dispenser is from somewhere around the mid-1930s to the early 1940s. It worked by mixing the flavored syrup and carbonated water when the handle was pulled and the drink was dispensed. The dispenser would have been mounted onto the counter of the soda fountain.
The lid of this dispenser has the Orange Crush mascot, Crushy, mounted on it. This stylized figure is shown holding an orange, supposedly squeezing the juice out of it as he is seen doing in vintage Orange Crush advertisements.
Produced: Mid-1930s to early 1940s
