This is a vintage 1902 Mansfield "Automatic Clerk" Pepsin Gum Vending Machine Glass Case. This is just the glass case portion of the machine.
None of the other parts are included. Still, just this alone is extremely rare and hard to find. I will consider serious offers. Would make a very good display piece or would be useful for re purposing or restoration.
Can be used to store things inside as well. The sign is still attached and in nice shape.
It advertises Peppermint and Blood Orange flavored Pepsin Gum for 5 cent. The front glass has etched/imprinted lettering that reads: AUTOMATIC CLERK MANSFIELD'S CHOICE PEPSIN GUM. It measures nearly 12" tall and approx 6 1/2" x 6 1/2 at the top and bottom.
Important Condition Details: This is the glass display case/body portion for a Mansfield Automatic Clerk Pepsin gum machine. It is obviously incomplete and missing several components, including all of the interior mechanisms. Again, this is just the glass outside case portion. It is for display, re-purpose or restoration.Would make a nice display case or usable for other project. Also displays nice on its own. This is very hard to find.
The case does have wear. The metal has some tarnish. I cleaned it but it's still dirty in cracks and corners. The sign advertising the gum is in nice shape as as the imprinted/etched in glass advertising.
There is a piece that has cracked off on one of the sides. The piece is still there but it comes out and it looks like some pieces of glass chipped from the edge of the crack so there is a small gap between the glass when put into place. Also a small "fish eye" crack to another corner. Failure to pay within this period may result in your right to the merchandise being voided.
