Photoset with 10 notes
There has been a long standing rumor that one of the crystals that make our stars in the sky was replaced long ago with a piece of a Coca-Cola bottle. Last week two of our restoration colleagues braved the extreme attic temperatures, climbed above the sky searching for this piece of history.
The myth is indeed true and the proof is in the pictures. Our restoration team is working with Coke to figure out what year this bottle originated. The 3rd and 4th photos are some of the other crystals that are used to make the stars shine.
