This is an old aluminum malt canister advertising Borden’s brand malted milk. These were commonly found on the back bar of old soda fountains and held the powdered malt for making malts as opposed to shakes. They were provided by different companies to advertise their product and keep their company name in view. This one is made of polished aluminum and it has three slightly recessed and painted panels with the advertising. In the center in dark blue enamel paint it reads; Borden’s – The Improved_ Malted Milk”. The top and bottom triangles have red enamel paint backgrounds. The top portion reads “We Serve” and the bottom portion reads “All Flavors Delicious”. The canister comes with its original polished aluminum lid with a round knob.
It measures about 8 ¾” tall with the lid on and 6” high with the lid off and the base measures about 6” in diameter. It is in very good original condition with minor wear. Some of the red paint is worn from the panels. The lid has some minor scuff wear and minimal dents. The inside of the tin has some deterioration, apparently from the product sitting in it for years.
