Confectionery,  and Soda Fountain

The late 1800's and early 1900's saw a breed of soda fountains decked out in marble, onyx and brass with large mirrors and elegant decorative elements. The best fountains had gold trim with Tiffany lamps and Favril glasswork. They were not the kitsch designs of the 1950s diners and malt shops, with wild colors and over-the-top branding. Classic fountains were more akin to the greatest hotel bars in the world with classy, dignified decor.

A paragraph about Traxel's from 1910 is here.
