Very, very rare, this is a Huyler' s Milk Chocolate tin milking pitcher candy container. I have not been able to find another in my search. From Wick: "Huyler's was a candy and restaurant chain in the New York City metropolitan area which was in business beginning in the 19th Century. Huyler’s chocolate and candy company was once the largest and most prominent chocolate maker in the United States. In 1883 their candy factory was located at Irving Place and 18th Street in Manhattan".
2.5" high and 2" in diameter, this wonderful milking pitcher pourer is a perfect dollhouse piece, shown here on the front steps of my FAO 1890's dollhouse. The scale is on the larger size for my dollhouse, but works. The milking pitchers were actually quite large as they had so much milk to collect. As to condition it is excellent in its original patina and it still retains the delicate wire handle. Across the hood it is stamped Huyler's Milk Chocolate in raised script. Last picture, I couldn't resist photographing it in the milking room of our 19th unrestored barn.
