Old metal milk pail out of a midwest dairy barn, unused for the last 50 years or so. This came from a Dutch (German) farm with a traditional barn and ways, and was painted white over the exterior. The paint is worn and scratched from time and use.
This measures 14" tall, 13" in diameter at the base, 7 1/2" across the neck of the kettle. There's no handle, but aside from that, this is in very good condition, not a lot of rust. We found no makers marks on this one, and aren't familiar with this milking machine style - though we do see a lot of old milking machines!
