Restored 1940's S&S Co. Orange Crush Cooler w/ Embossed Sides

Here is a truly amazing piece. Recently restored S&S Co. Orange Crush Chest Cooler retaining the original embossed sides, castors, and bottle opener. A truly rare and unique piece that I've only seen a few of, and none in the restored condition of this one. Notice the unique feature of the S&S Co. coolers where the legs were stamped and pressed out of the bottom rack. This is a non coin op cooler that also did not have a compressor and was not electric. Known as a "swamp cooler", of all of the antique Coca Cola machines and other unique soda and pop machines, this is by far among the most amazing and truly amazing pieces. Cooler measures 34 1/4" (H) X 22" (D) X 31" (W).

This cooler was recently restored. When acquired, it was painted completely black. It was disassembled, the embossed sides were stripped, reinforced, and filled, and the frame was sandblasted. Vinyl decals were applied to all of the embossed surfaces and clear coated. The galvanized metal was retained and painted silver. Lids are original to the cooler and were steel reinforced when restored. The cap catcher was replaced as these are almost always missing. The metal and frame were straight and in nice condition before being restored. No severe areas of damage other than surface rust and minor pitting. As you can see, the restoration is excellent overall. Only very minor imperfections are present (few scratches from the lids, and a only a few minor runs in the paint) but overall the restoration is very nice. The utmost consideration and care was given in respect to the color matching and decals to make this rare cooler historically accurate and stunning in all aspects. Serious inquiries only.
