A bit late for our usual fare but representative of our affinity for surviving utilitarian items of gone bye everyday life, this neat old worker’s dinner bucket remains untouched, as found and apparently unused. Not a big deal unless you appreciate such things, this old time dinner pail is complete and original even to its tin cup on the lid. It stands just under 10 inches base to the top of its cup and is about 7 inches in diameter. Retaining an original bright shiny tinned finish on internal surfaces, the outer portions offer that desirable natural age patina that comes to tin with decades of natural exposure. Now an attractive Americana collectable these sturdy dinner pails were used by , miners, factory workers, dock hands, and other laborers from the mid-19th century to hold hard-boiled eggs, vegetables, meat, pie, and other hardy fare until 1904 when the advent of the thermos vacuumed bottle brought about a change in design of the common lunch-box still popular today. A nice old piece of Americana on the fringe of our usual time period but scarce in this condition and worthy of appreciation. . As with all direct sales, we are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with refund of the purchase price upon return as purchased! Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
