For your consideration is a vintage Carnation Malted Milk Aluminum Container. Approximately 9"T (Top of knob on lid) X 6"Rd. (Base). It has the red background, slightly faded, with Carnation (in script) on the upper part of the container with a lovely raised Carnation Flowers & Leaves design in the center. On the bottom half it is printed: Malted Milk in black lettering. It has a removable lid with a large knob on the top. (For more information, please see page 44 of "Huxford's Collectible Advertising, Second Edition," copyright dated 1995.) I do not know whether this was made to be a ice bucket, cookie jar or maybe, to hold the powdered milk inside.
CONDITION: It shows wear from age & use. Such as light dents overall & some tarnish, especially on the bottom. Adds character to the piece! Great advertising piece for any Advertising collection, etc. Rare to find any of these containers still around! In very good & vintage condition.
