Vintage Pressed Cardboard Candy Bucket, Wellsboro Candy Company
The Wellsboro Candy Company, established before 1933, was located in Wellsboro, PA. This is cardboard bucket with a handle. The cardboard bucket is reinforced with metal surrounding the base, and has a thick wire around the neck of the bucket. As seen in the photos, a paper label with this information is pastel to the bucket and reads: "This Pail Contains...Remember---Everybody Likes Candy. Manufactured for Wellsboro Candy Company, 9 Queen Street, Wellsboro, PA."
The bucket is 12 inches high and is 10 1/2 inches in diameter at the base, and 12 1/2 inches in diameter at the top. When the handle is in the up position, its 21 inches high.
There are foxing marks here and there on the bucket (water stain). Over all the bucket is solid, and although a bit of rusting on the base, it is sturdy, and could be used.
