From the brilliant minds of the old Massengale Advertising Agency in Atlanta, GA.. We have a great, double-sided color Coke ad from an antique 1905 magazine yes, this is 117 years old! A wonderful piece of Coke history from the early days of the company.
One side of the page features an old Victorian-style soda fountain with various patrons and includes this statement below: Women of fashion at the soda fountain, all healthy and happy, and all drinking Coca-Cola. Because of its delightful flavor and beneficial results. The opposite side of the page also features a Coke advertisement that boasts Coke as being "healthful" and something that relieves fatigue. " It was also said to "relieve mental and physical exhaustion, among other things.If cocaine was indeed removed not long before this ad was created, then I don't know what they were actually peddling here. This sure is an interesting conversation piece! The page measures about 7 3/4" x 11" (the side that was removed from the magazine was cut a bit wavy). The 12th edition is the most recently-issued, despite being published quite some time ago. Values have likely climbed since then. This was originally bought in the late 80s already matted and framed but the glass and frame broke years ago, so it was then tucked away flat until now - there is a tear that was repaired with tape on the less-exciting side of the page, but this will mat out nicely - another small edge tear exists but will also be obscured by the mat when framed - some light wrinkling, a gentle bend, and other general wear exists to the page but only adds character to the piece due to the astounding age - also note that the paper does NOT appear as yellowed when viewing it in-person, my camera is just a little off with the colors. Please read on for the Description and other important info below..
This item is only available to US residents. The original Coke ad you see pictured above is the actual item you will receive, as no stock photos are used. This wonderful Coca-Cola artifact was designed by the Massengale Advertising Agency, responsible for creating some of the most beautiful ads in the early days of the Coca-Cola Company, also located in Atlanta, Georgia. The ad is completely original and is now 117 years old; it really deserves to be displayed and enjoyed for many more years to come.It's still in really good shape and will display nicely. There are some blemishes to the edges, but they will mat out - one is a tear that was repaired with tape, but this was done from the less-exciting back side. The page does have a very light bend that runs nearly all the way across the top third of the paper (looking horizontally), but this is something that was never really noticed when it was matted and framed. I have tried to show some of the blemishes in close-ups above so you can get a better feel for the overall condition. Don't let them scare you, though. I can assure you this will look great once it's matted and framed once again! This ad is not getting any easier to find today, and is really a wonderful representation of a bygone era. Please see the pics above to fully appreciate this historical piece of Coke memorabilia! This is from a pet and smoke free home.
