1939 Original Coca Cola Salesman Sample Cooler Min
Description: Hello and thank you for viewing our listing.
This is a 1939 Rare Coca Cola Salesman Sample Cooler Mini Chest w/ Cards.
"Beginning in 1935 cooler sales were promoted heavily with yearly "contests" in which the salesmen would compete to see who could sell the most coolers. The winner would be able to receive a variety of prizes — very similar to today's modern incentive programs. By 1938 the coolers were getting much more difficult to sell due to the dwindling number of locations that didn't already have one. This reality combined with the fact that the large coolers were very heavy and hard to demonstrate — caused the Coca-Cola Company to produce miniature versions of the larger "Master" cooler for 1939 calendar year."
The unit measures at 12"wide x 10.25"tall x 7.5"deep.
