Product Description

A rare original Cola bottle cooler…

Dating to the latter part of the 20th century, circa 1980s, this is a rare example of an original Cola cooler for diet-rite Cola, distributed by the RC Cola company, USA. Made in metal, hand painted and with an insulated interior, this has an awesome look for a display piece or as a functional bottle cooler

The cooler is in good condition structurally, complete with two carry handles and a ‘stop cock’ to one side (enabling the cooler to drain the water when finished using). The interior looks a little tatty and rusty, yet this has been tested and is water tight – therefore functional for many different purposes. The metal handles enable the piece to be easily lifted and carried to that picnic area. We love the used nature and the awesome patina created from hours of usage…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. There are some surface scuffs and scars across the piece along with some paint chipping. Some areas are a little dirty and tatty and there is some rusting in areas too. There are surface dents and bumps, but they are not detrimental to the performance of the cool box. We simply feel this adds to its charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…

A great collectable or functional piece for a picnic or road trip in the campervan or caravan…
