Coca-Cola Country.. In the UK from 1985 to 2016, Lilliput Lane handmade remarkably realistic looking small scall replicas of cottages and buildings. It was the company’s outstanding attention to detail that made them famous, selling in over 50 countries. In 1995 Lilliput Lane began development on a series of limited-edition American landmark miniatures. These specific miniatures feature the Coca-Cola brand and are collectively referred to as the “Coca-Cola Country” collection. Coca-Cola and its advertisements are also world-famous. So it was no surprise that their joint venture was a success. The Coca-Cola Country collection miniatures, distributed by Enesco European Giftware Group between 1995 and 1996 then retired between 1999 and 2000, were highly desired by collectors. Later when Lilliput Lane closed its factory in 2016, its miniatures became even more valuable.
Buildings included in the Coca-Cola Country collection include:
- A 1930s pharmacy that has a soda-fountain;
- A large rural street-level advertisement;
- A fresh produce farm market;
- An old style gas station;
- A rural billboard advertisement;
- A fish bait and tackle shop;
- A 1960s diner;
- A family-style restaurant;
- A mill;
- An old-fashioned “Five and Dime” thrift store.
The miniatures from this “refreshing” collection make great gifts for collectors, as well as Lilliput Lane and Coca-Cola enthusiasts.Follow Us:
