A one-of-a-kind soda fountain from 1893 was auctioned for $4.5 million Sunday at the Schmidt Museum of Coca-Cola Memorabilia in Elizabethtown.
The fountain was made by the Liquid Carbonic Co. and exhibited at the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair. It has front and back bars made of marble and alabaster with leaded glass lamps as soda dispensers.
It was bought by an anonymous buyer, who was bidding by phone.
An assessment before bidding placed the soda fountain’s value at between $75,000 and $125,000.
