    Coca Cola: Advertising Sign Picturing Lillian Nordica 1904. Long considered one of the most important pieces of Coca Cola advertising, we can think of only a few that would be more desired. Picturing the 1904 "Yankee Diva" of the American opera scene, this lithographed paper sign is certainly one of the most beautiful. Deep, rich colors with a very Victorian border, the sign is in very near mint condition. Minor checks to the edges and a nearly undetectable hole is present on the top of her right breast at the dress line. Both metal strips are intact and there is a 1" tear along the right edge near the bottom. We have only been able to reference one example selling in the recent past for $8000 that was badly damaged with significant paper loss.
    Not often do we have an opportunity to offer such a rare example in any collectible field in this kind of condition. Size: 14.5" x 19.5".
