Antique New Old Stock Ice Cream Container. This unused container is marked 1 Gill and all I can say is that people sure ate less ice cream in the old days. In excellent unused condition, this is a very cute container that will be perfect to display with your dolls or to fill with silk flowers or pearl necklaces or candy. The back of the container, which is intended to fold down to protect the ice cream, measures 3.875 inches, the box is 2 inches wide and is 1.5 deep. There are no manufacturer’s marks, and I believe this dates from the early 1900’s.
