Acton Coca Cola cooleror ice box, with top lid and bottle opener.Circa 1950's?Each side reads: Drink Coca Cola, then underneath Trademark, then, Acton Mfg. Co., Inc. Arkansas City, Kansas, Made in U.S.A., U.S. Pat. No. D-152580, Can. Pat. No. 86 Folio 15064, Other Pats. Pending.
I have tried to research this cooler, and have been unable to find another just like it. This seems to have a few differences in it, such as: There is no drain plug, and under the Coca Cola lettering, it does not read "In Bottles", like others I have seen. So, maybe these differences could help date this.
Condition is well used with scratches, dents, dings and scrapes. Only a couple of tiny spots of rust inside, and very little on the outside. The top handle that moves from side to side for opening, does not match up tight with the handle on the cover for carrying. There is a gap which can be best seen in picture #4, other than that the handle moves correctly.This is still a very nice vintage item that is full of wonderfulcharacter! Measures approximately 17 1/2" wide x 12 1/4" deep x 12 1/4" high, (not including top handle on the lid, that adds an extra 1 1/2"). Weight is about 14 lbs. unboxed.I welcome any questions and thanks for looking!
