Q: I have an old wooden bench with a metal Coca-Cola advertising sign on the backrest. The sign says, “Drink Coca-Cola” and “Fountain Service.” The crossbar on the metal legs is emblssed “Fountain Service” on each side. I would like to know if the bench is a reproduction and if it’s worth some money.

A: Benches like yours are not exceptionally rare, and we have not seen any reproductions. The benches, which probably date from the mid 1900s, most likely sat outside soda fountains that served Coca-Cola. Single benches sell for $100 to $150, depending on the condition of the bench and of the Coca-Cola sign on the backrest.
