Antique Soda Fountain

At Zeb’s we’re known almost as much for our antiques as for our thousands of unique and old time New England products. One antique that you can’t help but notice, and nearly everybody comments on, is the antique soda fountain and back bar.

The back bar is from Edgar Lucia Drugstore in Hudson, MA. The soda fountain was formerly in the Yesteryear Museum in Michigan (presently the Ford Museum) and is one of the finest examples of a turn of the century drugstore counter. Coke syrup would be added to carbonated water and dispensed from one of the three spigots by the Coca-Cola light. The cost was two cents per glass. And yes, the Coca-Cola glass light is original. No reproductions here.

Today we don’t pour Coca-Cola from the soda fountain but it is used as our custom gift basket making station. Don’t worry though, you can still buy Classic Coca-Cola in glass bottles and lots of old fashioned penny candy.
