ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) -- The one-of-a-kind fountain has bars of marble and alabaster, and includes leaded glass lamps that function as soda dispensers. It was exhibited at the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago.

The News-Enterprise reports the buyer bid by phone Sunday for the item offered by the Schmidt Museum of Coca-Cola Memorabilia in Elizabethtown.

Before the auction, the fountain was assessed at between $75,000 and $125,000.
