The first Coca-Cola vending machine started in 1929 was a 151-pound icebox that could store 72 six-ounce bottles of America’s bestselling soft drink. Each bottle was priced at five cents. Over the years, the mechanism of the vending machine evolved. In 1956, Vendo Company and Vendorlator Manufacturing Company created some iconic vending machines that are now considered works of art. A vintage Vendo Coca-Cola coin-operated machine is available for sale in the upcoming Art, Antiques, and Collectibles Auction, presented by Lion and Unicorn. The Vendo V-44 model is a ten-cent machine painted in Coca-Cola brand colors and logos.
A Breitling Superocean Heritage 42 Automatic watch is also on sale. Inspired by the original Superocean from the 1950s, the design features a black and silver unidirectional bezel. Several other antiquities and collectibles are being offered at the event, including a set of three antique Jade carved running horse sculptures.
