Wish it was mine...saw it on the 'net recently and it's a window display. Is this one of the 'holy grails' of collectors?

Beautiful display and certainly would qualify as a holy grail item in a Coca Cola collection. Looks like it would date from around 1920. I always look at antique advertising and think, wow, look at the beautiful displays people got to look at in the first half of the 20th century. IMO after the 50's, the quality and beauty of advertising went downhill fast and was nothing like the quality of this piece.

1922 (source: earlycoke.com). Definitely a high end piece. Good size too - about 5 x 2.5 ft.

Very rare . . . and valuable. Have only personally seen one in 40 years of collecting.
