This is a collection of two beautiful Coca-Cola fountain dispensers from the 1950s. Credited to Raymond Loewy, the "motorboat" shape of these dispensers is considered a milestone in fountain dispenser history, as they were designed to resemble an outboard motor. The first dispenser was manufactured by the Dole Valve Company (dispenser number LV-211965 on an interior plaque beneath the lid) and was known as the "Redhead Dispenser" and "Dole Super." The dispenser measures approximately 18" x 11" x 19", there is some paint loss on the white raised embossed letters on either side of "Drink Coca-Cola Ice Cold." The interior stainless steel needs a slight cleaning, the rubber tubes show some wear. The interior plaque also reads, "Designed For Dispensing Fountain Coca-Cola." The second item is a circa 1954 Coca-Cola syrup dispenser manufactured by Selmix Dispensers (serial number K-10117 on interior plaque). Also of the "motorboat" style, there is some minor paint loss on the exterior embossed white letters "Drink Coca-Cola Ice Cold." Measuring 16" x 9" x 21", there is some wear and use apparent on the exterior enameled metal and lid. The cast aluminum interior resides in an insulated cabinet and needs some light cleaning. For two dispensers that are over 50 years old, this pair is in fantastic condition!
