Antique Milk or Cream Can

Milk and cream cans are some of the most common dairy antiques. Until the adoption of farm bulk tanks and tanker trucks in the 1940's and 50's milk was stored cooled and transported in cans.

Cream cans were smaller then milk cans since the cream was a more concentrated product. Cream cans came in 4 8 10 and 12 quart sizes. The lids were usually held on by a chain and some lids were designed to force the air out of the can to keep the cream from churning into butter during shipment. The cream can on auction is a 4 quart can. It is stamped with only G S. We believe this was a Golden State cream can.


  • Dimension; 13" tall 3.5" 6 1/4" round at the base tapering to 4" at the top.
  • Condition; FAIR to GOOD Some scratches dents and rust no holes.

Many photos showing all sides and top. This is a nice cream can that is still able to hold liquids. Has minor dents on can and lid.

  • Smoke House Padlock – M W & Co

    Smoke House Padlock - M W & Co
    This is a nice relic from the gold rush days! I think collectors call this type of wrought iron lever lock a "smokehouse lock" or "smokie". The M.W. & Co. mark on the brass drop (keyhole cover) is that of Mallory, Wheeler & Company of New Haven, Connecticut. c. 1865-1910, the largest manufacturer of padlocks during that era. Apx. 3" high by 2 1/8" wide, Iron Case, Iron shackle. Found in Red Rover Canyon, Acton California. This old lock looks like it was preyed open with the shackle bent off slightly to one side and frozen in time where it laid. found in the late 1990's encrusted in rust and dirt, no longer working to keep valuables safe. One has to wonder what this lock held safe in it days! A door to a mine! Perhaps a strong box full of gold! It will cost be more to ship this item then it will fetch so placed here in auction to see what interests are out there.
