Rare Original 1903 Hilda Clark Coca-cola Tip Tray By Chas. W. Shonk - Nr - For SaleOriginal 1903 Coca Cola Tip Tray
Here's a rare, original 1903 Coca Cola Tip Tray. It shows Hilda Clark (famous songstress and actress at the time). Has manufacturer's name the Chas. W. Shonk Co., Chicago, Illinois at bottom of image. It's 6" round in diameter.
This tip tray is in very good to excellent condition overall. There are some flaws, but displays very well. I will be critical here and do my best to describe in detail. - No rust or paint touch-ups whatsoever. Litho is strong and not flaking. The outer edge of the rim has some paint wear and a ding at about 11 o'clock. Some minor paint nicks in several places around rim. There are some minor shallow dings, mainly towards left half of the face. They appear to be from the back, as there is no paint loss associated with them and can only be seen when held at an angle to the light. I have tried to capture it in one of my photos, but they are subtle and hard to capture. There are a few small dull spots on face of tray, again hard to capture and only visible at angle to the light. One of the dull areas is about the size of half of a U.S. quarter and half crescent shaped at lower right face of tray about 5 o'clock. Looks like it may have been from the edge of very small bottle that sat on it at one time. It's subtle. The back has some paint wear and smudging. The colors on this tray are strong overall and you will be pleased with how it will display in your collection. Terms:

The dark spots you see on the gold rim around 2 o'clock are not paint chips. Just some very small stains that are actually showing up a little darker in my photos, than they do to the eye.
