From the 1960s here is a lunch box that has a bunch of the animated characters Disney had created—at least up until that time.
Open the lunch box and discover the intact thermos. The thermos is made of plastic, so we suspect this lunchbox was made in the late ‘60s or early ’70s. The luchbox is well preserved and displays well.
Size: 8 ½ inches long; 6 ½ inches tall at the bus’s peak; 4 1/4 inches wide at the base
Condition: Some youngster used this lunchbox. They treated it well. On the outside, there is edge-wear, and scratches throughout, but nothing that takes away from the overall presentation. The tin is bowed both the base and lid. It looks like it was made this way. It certainly keeps the latches working correctly.
There is a spot of discoloration near the handle. We suspect something acidic wasn’t wiped off quickly enough during use.
The thermos is in very good condition, and just shows wear from storage. It doesn’t look the thermos was ever used.
The inside shows scratches from the thermos retainer, along with scratches from being used for carrying lunch.
Even with these issues, this is one of the best examples we have seen of this lunchbox.
