Coca-Cola Fishtail Sign: Vintage Coke Arciform Style Tin Sign
This style of arciform sign, which is more commonly referred to as a "fishtail sign" was used on advertising by the Coca Cola corporation from 1958-1965. In addition to signs, this fishtail logo also appeared on packaging and vending machines. However, after just a short 7-year-run, this logo was phased out and replaced by Coca Cola's now famous, red disc style logo which is still in use today.
This fishtail style of sign is highly popular and sought after by collectors due to its limited lifespan. Signs from this style and period are especially rare in original, unrestored condition. At ArtFactory.com, we have acquired one of these original signs and it is for sale for you to add to your collection today.
