This gorgeous vintage classic is pure Americana. Circa 1910 “Fan-Taz” syrup dispenser once adorned the countertop of a soda shop at the turn of the 20th century. In completely unrestored condition, this stunning baseball globe is all original, down to the pump on the lid, which is in Excellent and working condition. The globe’s lovely graphics are remarkably crisp and bold: “Drink of the Fans” on the sweet spot of the baseball design, its raised seams with some of the original gold gilding still present. 5 small baseballs with “League” painted on are dispersed among the letters, “Fan-Taz”, which is underlined by a baseball bat. “Drink of the Fans” painted just below, and “A Pennant Winner” painted on the podium. Very light crazing. Otherwise EX-MT overall with no chipping. Dimensions are 14” in height and 10” in diameter.
