Question: Al,
I picked this water cooler up a while back at auction.  It’s a neat cooler.  I’ve only seen ones with a bung hole in the book.  I was curious what you thought on value and was wondering what time frame were they produced?  Also, what is the correct spigot for these with the hex bung hole?   The cooler is mint, no chips, cracks, stains, etc…

Thank you. Dru


Dru, what you really have is an Ice Water that was stenciled Water Cooler.  This is a very early cooler produced between 1915 & 1917.  These use to sell for around $3000.  Today, I would think maybe $2000 in in perfect shape.  Nice piece.  Al Kohlman
