Title: 1933 Orange Crush Dispenser from Chicago Worlds Fair
Post by: SIGNGUY on October 17, 2016, 03:57:16 PM
Saw this in an antique/collectables store up near me this past weekend.. Orange crush PORCELAIN syrup dispenser from the 1933 Chicago Worlds Fair.
it's all porcelain and in pretty good shape.. stands nearly 3feet tall and about 16 inches around on widest part.  
Price tag on it at antique mall was ONLY $17,500.00 .. let me know if you want me to pick this up for anyone...  :biggrin: :oops:

Maybe its just me but I hear more and more about items being from the worlds fair. Seems to me to be a new gimmick to sell. If an Item I'm buying is listed as such then I want some proof. Picture or something. This one is the real deal apparently. This one sold for $7,000

Yep, appears to be same one...
can't imagine too many around..
the guy selling it is a big collector up around here.. as an incredible display of items and all priced high end.. but he gets it from a lot of big dollar people that come up here to resorts and cabins and such from Chicago and other areas...
I'll have to offer him 7500 and tell him he's making a profit... :oh: :biggrin:
