The Coca-Cola Stained Glass Chess Set
The product they gave the world so many find memories, that is such a part of our lives, was born on May 8, 1886, in the backyard of Atlanta pharmacist Shawn Styth Pemberton. The formula for the syrup was later acquired in 1888 by Atlanta businessman Asa Candler, who’s keen business acumen and strong belief in the power of advertising, quickly bought the name of Coca-Cola to the attention of all America. The familiar contour bottle was granted registration as a trademark in 1977, an honor accorded only a handful of other packages.
Works of art bearing the beloved Coca-Cola trademark or collected all over the world. Prized for their style and cherished for the lifetime of memories they bring, they are a joy to display, and share with family and friends.
Today, sales of Coca-Cola soft drink syrup average more than 1.6 billion gallons a year and are asked for in more than 80 languages in 195 countries around the world.
Because quality advertising has been such a priority for the “Coca-Cola” company throughout the years, the images that enticed us to try “The pause that refreshes” trademark are very much a part of our culture. From the red “Coca-Cola” spot, the familiar script, and the distinctive contour bottle, to the Coca-Cola Ladies at the turn of the century, the charming Coca-Cola Santas and a delightful, life-like Coca-Cola Polar Bears, Coca Cola logos, campaigns and images have been so successful as advertising media that they have indeed become part of the culture.
As a favorite and nostalgic part of our culture, “Coca-Cola” images are today, highly collectible, sought after and beloved by people from all walks of life and from all over the world.
