"Celluloid CAMEO" self framed Coca Cola w/. Hanging chain, soda sign produced over 115 yrs ago.
Extremely Rare +++, in any condition. This is the "HOLY GRAIL" of Coca Cola signs ever made & very few still exist today. 1 of 4, I've seen in over 50+ years of collecting, certainly the very rarest of all coca-cola signs ever hands down.. Of the 4, One #1, is in the Coca Cola museum in Atlanta.The second one #2, is in the Alan Petretti collection listed in. 12th edition pg 267 booked for 12,000.00 , in 2008. The fourth one #4, known, comes from my personal 50+ year private collection.
Gorgeous color & distinctive CAMEO Celluloid, ornate detailed metal framing w/hanging chain will certainly be the centerpiece of any collection. Reverse print: Drink Coca Cola 5c printed on back side , m. Arked on edge WOLF & CO.Makers Philida, as shown in pic #2. The famous opera star model Lillian Nordica stands in her white Victorian dress and feather fan.
Glass resting on stand by her side, adorns this early piece of Coca Cola history. This early self framed "cameo" hanging sign displays nice with gorgeous orate framing & metal chain, with just some minor flaking on dress lower right side bottom, see pic #4, discoloration on right side of stand, see pic #3 & typical grazing overall with light edge wear, I seriously doubt you will find another in better shape as most are in museums & private collections.. Still displays great for an early Coca Cola piece, made in 1905. See all pictures for details & judge for yourself.
8 1/2 " x 12" w/ wooden & acrylic glass shadowbox frame added to protect piece. Ready to hang, 13 1/2" x 17 1/3" total in frame, See last pic #6. Gnore camera flash on pics. Erious BEST offer for consideration, based on condition of this early rare 1905 celluloid sign, & what is within your budget. You would be Very hard pressed in finding another in a lifetime!!!!
Once its gone, into another collection, its gone!! & be sure to check out my other rare items listed this week.
