Ultra-Rare Canadian Coca-Cola Porcelain Flange Sign



UPDATE:
We have had the flange of the sign fixed and is now back to having its 90 degree bend. It is done perfectly as you will see in the new photos of the flanged edge following this text. There was no further damage done to the porcelain when the sign was bent back as the photos will show.





COCA COLA 1950 CANADIAN PORCELAIN ENAMEL FLANGE SIGN. The RARE word is the most over used word in the antiques business. In this case the correct description is ULTRA-RARE. Back in 1998 I sold my personal collection of antique advertising by public auction. After the auctioneer had picked up my collection to photograph and catalog, but before the catalog went to print the auctioneer received a phone call from a picker he knew who had found a Coca Cola flanged sign that he felt was rare as it was not listed anywhere at that time.(1998) He asked the auctioneer if it would be possible to consign it to the auction. Because I was the primary consignor the auctioneer called me to get my approval allowing it into the auction. Feeling that it would enhance the sale I agreed. To everyone's surprise on auction day the sign realized $12,500.00 an incredible amount in 1998. It was the top selling lot in the sale. It sold to a collector/dealer in the U.S.A. Two or three years later I ran into the buyer at the Atlantic City Antique Advertising/Collectors show which was the largest indoor show in the world at that time. We spoke of the Coca-Cola sign that he had purchased at mu auction and he told me he either sold the sign for $35,000.00 or turned down $35,000.00 for it.WOW! To my knowledge a second one has not surfaced until now. A couple months ago I bought the second one. It was found in the Toronto area.  The sign is a two sided flange. It is marked "Made in Canada 1950 P&M" . The flanged edge has been straightened out. I have been told that it could be bent back with a brake from an auto body repair shop. I have not done that. I am selling it as it was found. It measures 16" X 16" and  is a die-cut sign. The sign has a very minor warp or twist..not serious. This may correct itself when the edge is bent back. Again it is not serious either way.
SIDE 1: (facing left from flanged edge) dime size chip on "A" of "COLA". Outside edge chips. Porcelain loss on flanged edge. This is the edge that will not be visible when it is straightened out and mounted on a wall as this is the back of the flange facing the wall.Very minor very light surface scratches.
SIDE 2:(facing right from flanged edge) slightly smaller than a dime size chip overlapping the "C" and the "O" of COLA. One chip on"C" of COCA and one tiny one on the "O" of COCA with another tiny one between the "O" and the "C". Outside edge chips and some loss of brown porcelain on flanged edge.
 Overall the sign is shiny and bright. All I have done is wash it. I believe there are 8 different colors. I have included lots of pictures . As far as I know this is the first one to show up since 1998 so using the term "ULTRA-RARE" would not be an exaggeration. I have been buying and selling antique advertising for over 35 years. People I talked to that have been in the business longer than I have not heard of a second one surfacing either. THIS IS AN INVESTMENT GRADE PIECE OF BLUE CHIP COCA-COLA MEMORABILIA. (see Petretti's Coca-Cola price guide 12th edition page 220.. 2008)
Reasonably priced at : $18,000.00    
 

Coca-Cola Conical Shaped Lamp RARE



COCA-COLA EARLY 1960'S FISHTAIL LOGO CONICAL SHAPED LAMP. Plastic lamp on metal base. The lamp is a very impressive 31" in height with a 13" diameter base. The top is open (by design to let the heat of the bulbs  out) with a diameter of 5 1/2". ENJOY COKE on one side with DRINK COCA-COLA on the other. There are 4 light bulbs inside. The plastic is in perfect condition. There are 3 metal feet on bottom. There is a rubber tip on one, the other 2 are missing. Minor and hardly worth mentioning and certainly easy to replace. I have spoken to a couple of long time dealers one of whose specialty was Coca-Cola memorabilia and he told me that in his 40 years he doesn't remember ever seeing another one. In my 34 years as a full time dealer and having attended Coca-Cola conventions, many major U.S and Canadian shows have never seen another one. I can not find this lamp in any of my Coca-Cola guides. It looks fabulous lit up and would certainly be a center piece of any collection. Very rare.
PRICE:$2200.00

1905 Coca Cola Coupon


ORIGINAL 1905 COCA COLA COUPON.Measures 9 1/2" in length X 6 3/4" in width. This coupon was found in the back of a framed photo that came out of a storage locker auction recently. The fellow who found it noticed a tear in the corner of the photo and noticed there was something behind it. He took the piece apart and voila...The ad is near perfect. It even has the border with the staple holes from the magazine. Who ever framed it way back when took the time to take the magazine apart. This ad is 100% complete and in near perfect condition. There are some very, very minor creases, hardly worth mentioning. The colors were protected by the photo covering it so it is crispy bright. It would be hard to find a more complete one or one in better shape. Guaranteed old and original.
PRICE:$695.00
