The item forauction is a Vintage Metal Milk Box / Bottle Container with an assortment of Milk Bottles. The items are all original. The metal Milk Box measures 15 ¾âe long by 11 ½âe high by 9âe wide and features the original handle. Originally, the Milk Box could hold eight (8) quart bottles...twice the capacity of the normal 4four (4) quart containers. As an added bonus six (6) assorted styles and sizes of glass milk bottles are included. The milk box was manufactured by the Cumberland Case Company of Chattanooga , Tenn. Sometime between the 1940âe(tm)s through the 1950âe(tm)s. The assorted bottles range from the 1930âe(tm)s through the 1950âe(tm)s and were from long past area dairies from the Upstate New York region. An additional photo illustrating the possibilities of using old milk bottles to display small collectibles is also provided but, the items pictured are not included in this lot.

Our family uses a similar milk box to keep salt for the sidewalks in winter time and small garden utensils in warm weather. Traditionally, these containers were left on dairy customers porches and replenished daily with fresh milk. It is interesting to think that the home owner would as a courtesy clean these bottles to leave for the âeoeMilkmanâe. A long time has past since these were last cleaned and Iâe(tm)m sure a little more time and effort these old bottles would sparkle. All six bottles are void of any cracks or chips but, I did miss a few spots.

Add these items to a current collection or display them to create or enhance a particular decorating theme. Collectible, Nostalgic, Great Display Items.

Special Note: Just researched Ebay sites and found two other Metal Milk Boxes that exceed $100.00 and with no bonus of added bottles ! Others listed as well currently under that amount. This is truly a great opportunity to purchase these collectibles and an awesome deal for the winning bidder !
