Here are beverage items that do not include soft drink or beer, such as coffee, etc. Soft drink items and beer items are accessible by way of the dropdown links in the navigation bar to the left, under the Beverage Advertising Items heading found under Antiques. Enjoy!
I’m told that a gum eraser will remove surface rust, but didn’t want to try it, in case you wanted the item in current condition.
I have not cleaned it because you may do that differently than I would.
• About 5 7/8″ tall.
• About 4 1/4″ wide at the base.
• Parts of paper label missing or damaged as seen in photos.
• One of the narrow frames on the label is easy to read, but the other one is extremely difficult.
• No lid.
• Label shows weight to be one pound and informs us that Wamba is imported and roasted by Magnolia Coffee Co Houston TEX.
• Can is structurally decent with no big dents or any holes. Very little actual rust, as seen in photos; this one didn’t sit in a bucket of rain in the yard.
• Still a very nice display-able can for your collection.
• Not an easy brand to find.
Vintage Maxwell House Coffee Mug Red England FPC Gold Trim White Interior
• About 3 1/4″ tall
• About 3″ wide, not including handle.
• No chips, cracks or stains.
• Bottom mark (extremely difficult to photograph) is FPC and across from that is ENGLAND, but only because I know that’s what it says.
• The gold detailing is really hard to capture because it reflects everything around it, but I think it is in good shape; maybe not perfect.
May Day Coffee Mug Yester Year 1992 Westwood Ceramic Vintage White Interior
• About 3 1/2″ tall
• About 3 1/2″ wide, not including handle.
• Tiny bite at bottom rim, shown in picture, may be a factory flaw.
• Bottom mark shows us Yester Year by Westwood, 1992.
• Sticker residue present on bottom.
• Great color, nice crisp lettering; super nice addition to a mug or coffee item collection. I’m selling my collection so you can start yours.
• This is an “entry level” can, meaning that the label is in rough condition, so it becomes a placeholder in your collection while you search for another one with a label in better condition.
• Inside of can and lid are remarkably clean, especially given its age.
• Apart from the distress of the label, the can is structurally good; light rust that is fairly even does little to detract from overall condition.
• Lid reads “RIDENOUR – BAKER GROCERY COMPANY WHOLESALERS COFFEE ROASTERS MANUFACTURERS IMPORTERS KANSAS CITY MO.”
• Measures 5″ diameter, 3 ¾” tall.
Vintage Maryland Club Coffee Can, Miniature, Sample Size
• About 2 1/4″ tall
• About 2 1/8″ wide
• No serious damage, some VERY insignificant rust along rims.
• Inside and bottom are super clean, too.
• This tiny can would have been a sample, but under what condition it was offered to the public, I have no idea. Note the Coca Cola information on the back label; those guys own everything, don’t they?
• There is no lid and it does not appear that it had a lid that had to be cut away with a can opener, but I really do not know how it was originally presented.
• Nice little item for your collection!
Eight O’Clock Coffee Tin Bank
• Measurements in bottom photo on the right.
• Super clean condition; I can move the lid but cannot remove it. I don’t think this means it can’t be removed, only that I cannot seem to do it.
• Small print under “COFFEE” tells us that this coffee was sold in/by the A&P grocery stores.
• Sticker residue present on bottom.
• Great color, nice crisp lettering; super nice addition to a coffee item collection. I’m selling my collection so you can start yours.
• Faint scratches are present, but nothing deep or damaging.
• Measurements provided in/by the bottom right photo.
• Sticker residue on the bottom, photo center right, is pretty much the only thing that needs to be cleaned up on this one.
• Lid is tight enough that I can only move it a bit; it will probably come off, but I was afraid I would scratch the color if I tried harder, so I didn’t.
• This will be a nice companion piece for you, whether you are a coffee item collector like me, or a collector of tins or still banks. Enjoy!
