John Stith Pemperton
Upside Down Coke Can - c1886

Brown carbonated liquid in red and white aluminum exterior, placed upside down in plastic casing.

Often confused with the international sign of happiness, this punched aluminum, carbon composed, Caramel E-150d concentrate has been long mistaken for a children’s soft drink. The debacle came to light in the late 20th century after the nationwide outbreak of Type-1 diabetes. The artwork was never intended for human consumption.

Limited edition of 11.
