FROM THE COLLECTION-
This porcelain Coca-Cola syrup urn is from 1900. Porcelain urns like this one were given to fountain operators who ordered more than 100 gallons of Coca-Cola syrup per year. Soda fountain operators would add Coca-Cola syrup to the urn and then add ice and carbonated water. Gravity did the rest!
This artifact is on display in the Metropolitan Frontiers exhibit at the Atlanta History Center.
