More details about this item

Turned Wooden Handle on a Wire Bail Stamped "Cream City" cursive logo on the lid. This logo was used in 1911 through the 1930's. This can was probably used to hold kerosene for filling lamps. Nice addition to a Country Kitchen collection, or early Americana. Manufactured by Geuder, Paeschke Frey Co., Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They made other tin kitchenware called "Cream City Ware." Bottom soldered around the edge, appears to possibly be a later repair, not original to the can. Someone apparently used one of those antiqueing kits on this, the ones that were popular in the 1970's. The lid is painted shut, and I have never opened it. Size: about 9.5 inches tall; base 6.25 inches diameter. Condition: Good. Old. Dented in places. No cracks. USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation. Consider making more than one purchase to save on shipping. Please take a moment to read the Seller Policies for more information.
