Lovely and Rare galvanized steel Antique Milk Box with faded lettering that reads SMITHS MODERN "A" QUALITY DAIRY PALMYRA PA in faded painted lettering on the front, and deeply embossed "Property of Smith's Dairy, Palmyra, PA" lettering on the side.
Wonderful piece of early Dairy History when the Milkman would bring milk, cream, sour cream, and butter right to the front porch. Smith's was a dairy from Palmyra Pennsylvania. We actually used this milk box for several years when we still had our local dairy delivering glass milk bottles to our back porch up until about 15 years ago!- we'll be sad to see it go. It does a fine job of keeping your milk and butter cool and safe until you step outside the kitchen door to retrieve it.

Nice large size for a milk box- measures approx. 13" wide x 11 deep" and sits 13 1/4" tall. The hinged lid works great, and there is a nice functional thin lining of old styrofoam insulation neatly lining the inside. This cottage core charming milk box would also make a great porch planter or entrance decor item. Or fill it with some ice and a few cold beers for your next country style backyard party. Old Fashioned Milk Boxes are PERFECT for bringing an old farmhouse style to your home. This one is in very good and functional condition.
Please review all pictures and notice the wear and personality from a long life. There is wear, marks and character from a long life.

Serious buyers only please. No cashiers checks/money order scammers. Cash only.
Please note- I will give you my street address once you are actually getting in your car to come here (too many 'no shows')
