NO rust, NO dents, tin has been cleaned and waxed. Size: 5 1/2" tall, 5 1/4" diameter, 8 3/4" tall with bale extended. Cottolene was produced in the USA from 1868 until the mid 20th century. It was the first mass-produced and mass-marketed alternative to lard and is remembered today chiefly for its iconic national ad campaign and the cookbooks that were written to promote its use. Widely promoted and advertised in 1904 through 1907. The N.K. Fairbank Co., manufactured soap as well as animal and baking products in conjunction with the major meat packing houses of northern Illinois. The N. K. Fairbank Corporation of Chicago seized on this glut and created a product catering to late-19th-century America's growing infatuation with labor-saving packaged foods for the "dainty" (lard-free) diet.
