Coca Cola trays have been around since 1897 with the first Victorian woman tray. Since then the trays have covered many different subjects from the Olympics to Norman Rockwell scenes.
This original 1904 Coca-Cola Tin Lithographed Advertising Tip/Change Tray is known to collectors as “The Exhibition Girl” Tray. This wonderful Coke Tray measures 6 1/4" in length and 4 1/2" in width. and features an image of a beautiful, young woman wearing a gauzy, light blue dress and seated at a table enjoying a glass of Coca-Cola. In the background we see the grounds of the Alaska–Yukon–Pacific Exposition held in Seattle, Washington (hence the name of this tray – “The Exhibition Girl”). There is text on the Tray that reads simply “Drink Coca-Cola”. The chromolithography on this tray is beautiful, with only several minor spots of wear on the lady. The black back shows some minor rust. The subject was repeated on the 1909 Soda Fountain Serving Tray. The tip tray was reproduced in 1973.
