antique victorian edwardian cream dairy steel can dairy supply company museum street london

An original, quality antique dairy can dating from the turn of the Century, in excellent condition.

Steel dairy cans were used on milk delivery floats to deliver dairy products like milk and cream door to door. A can of this size would typically have been used for transporting cream.

This example is complete with all its original brass fittings including a brass wire swing handle on the top, a fixed loop on the back and a large brass mount to the hinge of the lid.

The brass mount is stamped “The Britannia”, which is the name of this particular item. To the front of the dairy can, the maker’s name has also been stamped “Dairy Supply Company. Museum Street London.”

In great workable condition and would make a lovely kitchen display item. Age is shown in some patches of oxidised steel.

Width, 13cm; Height, 12cm; Depth, 10.5cm.
