This classic coca-cola advertising tray depicts a man and woman in golfing outfits. The man is standing, pouring the woman a glass of Coca-Cola, with his golf bag lying next to him. The artist, Fred Mizen, is known not only for his commercial illustrations but also for his paintings of Native Americans. He illustrated the first Coca-Cola billboard in 1925 and produced work for numerous magazines, including Colliers and the Saturday Evening Post. He also produced paintings that The Coca-Cola Company used in newspaper and magazine ads. One of his best-known works for The Coca-Cola Company was an illustration of bears drinking Coke in Yellowstone National Park. We have priced this quite low, since it has seen better days. There is a big glare spot on the photo. Actually, both figures are clear, but there is expected scratches and dings.
