Early 1920s Buhl Stamping Company of Detroit 4 Quart Ice Cream Can with Lid
This antique dairy container made by the Buhl Stamping Company out of Detroit, Michigan is an early example of how dairy (including ice cream) was transported via rail around the United States. For being so old, it's amazing how there was only surface rust and the integrity of the container is intact.
