By 1899, the syrup requirement was lowered to 35 gallons a year. The number of urns available in private hands today would suggest that they were most often kept by the soda fountain and then stored away or given away when they were no longer in use.
Designed in an elaborate Victorian style, the twenty-one inch tall urn was made of a semi-porous white porcelain material with gold leaf detailing and and red Coca-Cola logos. The urns were meant to be decorative and were intended to sit prominently on the front or back bar of the soda fountain.
The bowl of the urn was filled with Coca-Cola syrup which was dispensed through a faucet connected to the base of the bowl. Each drink consisted of one ounce of syrup and five ounces of carbonated water and chipped ice. The bowl's capacity is one and one-eighth gallons of syrupenough for 144 servings of Coca-Cola.Since its appearance in 1896, the Coca-Cola Syrup Urn has become the iconic collectible related to Coca-Cola's early history. A replica made of rubber was produced for promotional purposes in the mid 1950's and a ceramic replica was produced for collectors in the 1970's. Both are easily distinguishable from the original.
