248: 1900 COCA-COLA HILDA CLARK 9 ¼" SERVING TRAY
1900 Hilda Clark 9 ¼" serving tray Truly remarkable, just totally outstanding. The colors are bright and crisp. Every bit of detail is sharp, nice gloss finish. Three white scratches in background, some white paint on (flat) blue edge which may have been done to cover up some rubs. Does not take away one bit from the outstanding beauty of this tray

Special Note regarding VENDING MACHINES VEH
The Schmidt Museum Collection is offering a superb selection of vending machines and coolers. Keep in mind these machines have been on display since the 1970âs. Their main purpose was strictly for display, in a museum setting. We made no attempt to determine if it is in working condition. If a machine has been restored, we have tried to explain the restoration as best as possible. However, it is very important to note here, that many machines were refurbished by the individual bottler and put back into service. We do not consider that refurbishing to be restoration. Again, any of these machines and coolers will be available for detailed inspection with advanced notice. All vehicles are being sold AS IS. Interested parties should personally inspect vehicles prior to purchasing.
