Peering over a Petretti’s Coca-Cola Collectibles Price Guide, Dr. Ted Meyer leafs through hundreds of images of historic bottles and bowls, advertisements and cutouts, where red checks and circles mark the treasures claimed. The fascination began during his study breaks in the Emory library, where gold Coke bottles were displayed with pride, and after receiving a Paul “Bear” Bryant Alabama Crimson Tide Coke bottle from his father, there was no turning back. Three bottles act as flavorful doorstop for the pediatrician’s office, a ceramic syrup dispenser stained brown from years of spilled sweetness sits in the corner and a historically accurate and refurbished Coke dispenser encourages you to “Refresh Yourself” for a mere 10 cents. Hutchinson and straight-sided bottles, hand-painted glass, original labels, clear, blue, brown and purple glass from Ethiopia, China, Bangladesh, Israel, Yugoslavia, Greenland… “I just like the fact that the name Coca-Cola is all around the world,” Meyer says.
