"Celluloid CAMEO" self framed Coca Cola. Hanging chain soda sign produced over 115 yrs ago. This early piece is 1 of 2, I've seen in over 45+ years of collecting, certainly the very rarest of all coca-cola signs ever hands down.. Gorgeous color & distinctive CAMEO Celluloid framing, 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 & typical grazing overall.....
