Andy Warhol's "Coca-Cola (4) Large Coca-Cola" sold for a whopping $35.36 million to an anonymous telephone bidder last night at Sotheby's robust contemporary and post-war art auction. The painting wasn't even in color
The Coke bottle went for $10 million more than had been predicted.
On a side note, I love this bottle, I'm not a big fan of Coke, but there's something about drinking the fizzy soda from a plain minimal glass bottle. It's one of those indestructible brands, when physically broken in thousands of shattered pieces, you can always recognize that it's a Coke glass bottle!
