Coca Cola Tin that looks like a Coke bottle. This tin is in wonderful condition, no chips, dents or scratches. The top is hinged on the left side and opens. It measures in inches approx.: 4 W x 13 L x 3.5 H.
Is this wonderful tin still available?
Namaste good friend,
Yes the tin is still available. If you tell me where you are located I can arrange a convenient location where we can meet for you to see it.
Oh wonderful. This is sort of strange to ask but, my father recently passed and loved Coca Cola. I was hoping to find something like this to put his ashes in. Is it big enough to hold about 5lbs of ash?
I apologize if this is startling :-\
Sorry to hear about your father. Tin is large but it might work. The size is 4 W x 13 L x 3.5 H. What do you think.
Hmmm, I’m not sure. Well,maybe I could put like half of him in that and then like store the rest of his ashes in just like a 2liter coke bottle until I can find another tin or other suitable container. That wouldn’t be too disrespectful would it? He did love Coke after all!
Sometimes I wonder if maybe if he loved diet coke he would have lived longer :(
you could try putting the other ashes in another Coke tin. Do not use the 2 liter bottle, because it is made of plastic and would not be a suitable container even if temporary.
I suppose you’re right. I don’t even have a funnel – it would be very difficult to get the ashes down the skinny opening of a 2 liter bottle. That could have been very messy! Thank you for the advice.
Is this the only tin you have?
P.S. – Someone told me that the “ashes” are just the ground up bones. Do you know if that is true?
This is the only tin I have. When would you like to see it.
Well, I couldn’t just leave Shirley hanging, so I sent one last email to her…
Shirley, I spoke to some people in my family and they dont like my idea very much :( They claim its disrespectful and that as far as they remember, he didn’t even like Coke that much more than other drinks. :-
Sorry for the confusion – but thank you for the help, I hope you find a buyer for your nice tin
Namaste and blessings,
So what did we learn from Shirley?
- Should you store your father’s ashes in a coke bottle shaped tin? Sure!
- Should you store his leftover ashes in a 2 liter bottle? No!
- Are cremation “ashes” just the powder from ground up bones? I guess we’ll never know.
