The iconic Coca Cola Crates are probably our most popular of all the Vintage American drinks crates, instantly recognised and very quickly sold out.
Here at Vintage Crates we get very excited when we know there is to be a delivery of Coca Cola Crates. We know they will not be with us for long as they so quickly go out again. While theyre with us we like to see the various markings and are interested to see which state theyve come from and sometimes which year they were made.
The most popular use for these crates seems to be in the Kitchen and Bathroom as storage but the sectioned ones sit well on a wall with trinkets in them.
These Coke Crates are very difficult for us to track down, they have become increasingly rare and of course are shipped over from the States.
Coca Cola was first introduced in 1886 by John Pemberton, it was marketed as a patent medicine at Jacobs Pharmacy in Atlanta. It was sold from a Soda Fountain for 5 cents a glass. Pemberton claimed that Coca Cola cured many diseases including morphine addiction, dyspepsia, headache and impotence. We wonder what he would have thought if hed known it would still be so popular in the world today, over a century later?
To own a Vintage Coca Cola Crate is to have a piece of living history and an endless talking point between you and your friends and family.
We only have a few of these crates some Open, one or two more chunky than others, dependant on where they were made; about half a dozen with 24 sections, one only with 12 sections and three very rare ones with two sections at one end and two thirds of the crate open. Weve put photographs on the site and given some options but it will be First come First served . When each option sells out well take the option off the site.
We would like you to remember that these are genuine Vintage Crates have had a long and busy working life so do expect to see some signs of wear and tear. They vary in colour, but this adds to the character .
