Many items were shown in his price guide editions throughout the years. Watch my listings for calendars, trays and other unique memorabilia from Allan's archive warehouse. This is a very unique Coca-Cola Gum Display that was replicated by Allan Petretti, using the actual early items. The gum jar is original from Franklin-Caro of Richmond, VA. The Dutch Girl's arm and.Of gum is also original. The 90 packs of gum wrappers are color copies taken from an original wrapper and. Around actual sticks of foil-wrapped gum. The gum jar label is also a color copy of the original label. To take better photos of the Dutch Boy & Girl displays, I removed them from the frames so you can see the 3-D effect of the arms with gum. Dutch Boy & Girl are color copies, not actual cardboard displays. In the 1980s, I was contacted by a museum regarding a donation that was given to them. This donation by a local elderly lady had nothing to do with the theme of the museum, and remained in storage until after her death.
As part of the agreement to sell these pieces, I was commissioned to create a replica display to be displayed in that museum in honor of the donor. This is that display, which, afterwards was decided not to be used, and has remained in my archives ever since.The (set) display consists of the following. Original - Franklin Caro glass gum jar & original lid.
Reproduced - (from original), paper gum jar label. Recreated, individually wrapped, 5 stick packs of (modern) 90 packs. Wrappers were copied from an original wrapper.
Dutch Girl - this piece has been digitally recreated and color corrected, side by side with the original. Rm and pack of gum are original, and were among misc. Pieces that were with this group. Mounted on the created cutout to give the, intended, 3-D effect. Dutch Boy complete, digital, and color corrected to the original.His arm has been cut and re-mounted to give 3-D effect. Special Note: These pieces, as well as their larger size counterparts were designed to display in 3-D with the arm and pack of gum printed separately, die-cut, and re-attached to give this effect.
This is truly a one-of-a-kind display. That was commissioned by a museum and more importantly, replicated by Allan Petretti.
That in itself, is priceless. This would definitely be the centerpiece of your collection and with a great story behind it.
