The gorgeously distressed and rustic-blue Solar Sturges "NEVERLEAK" dairy-farm milk can is in good condition. This milk can is being offered in this listing for decorative and/or dry storage purposes only. While there are no recognizable/discernible capacity markings on this milk can, the dimensions of the lower section reveal that it should hold approximately five gallons. The gorgeously distressed and rustic-blue appears to be the original color. At some point in the past, the "Eagle" theme paper with the Great Seal of the United States was added to the can. While there is an identification mark on this milk can that shows "NEVERLEAK" inside a stretched triangle in the center of the bottom, the 1921247 below the triangle is actually a patent number. According to references, the design of this particular milk can was invented by James P. Walker with the patent being issued to the Solar Sturges Manufacturing Company of Illinois on August 15th, 1933. Just above the triangle-shaped "NEVERLEAK" logo on the bottom, there is a number "31" stamped into the steel. In addition to the information on the bottom, "SOLAR" is stamped into the top of each handle. The distressed and rustic-blue color along with the early twentieth-century design and "Eagle" theme accent give this gorgeous dairy-farm milk can a wonderful primitive-Americana charm.
Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual.
There are no cracks, holes, deep dents, or repair places on this beautifully distressed and rustic-blue dairy-farm milk can. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub marks on this milk can - mainly in the form of a distressed and rustic patina. Also, while the outer "Eagle" wrap is still intact, there are some loose spots and/or bubbles along with signs of distress in the paper accent wrap. In addition, while the exterior has been lightly washed with soap and water, the interior has not been cleaned because the lid has not been removed.
The decorative possibilities for this gorgeously distressed and rustic-blue Solar Sturges dairy-farm milk can are many. The entryway or dining area would be enhanced by the addition of this beautiful Solar dairy-farm milk can. Also, the living area or study would welcome this steel milk can for its distressed and rustic-blue color and primitive-Americana charm. In addition, the growing milk can collection would increase in value and interest upon the arrival of this Solar Sturges dairy-farm milk can.
The collector will appreciate this gorgeous Solar Sturges dairy-farm milk can for its good condition, distressed and rustic-blue color, triangle-shaped "NEVERLEAK" logo on the bottom, primitive-Americana charm, and beautiful overall appearance.
The distressed and rustic-blue Solar Sturges "NEVERLEAK" steel milk can weighs approximately 12 pounds 6 ounces.
The early twentieth-century rustic-blue Solar Sturges "NEVERLEAK" dairy-farm milk can measures approximately 19 1/8" tall x 10 5/8" wide across the round bottom from outside to outside x 9 5/8" wide across the round lid from outside to outside.
The diameter of this distressed and rustic-blue dairy can measures approximately 32.5" around the can near the base.

***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:
If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote. If a shipping cost cannot be populated outside of the United States it is possible that the item is too big to be shipped or it is listed for local pickup only. However, please check with me to make sure as sometimes there could be system errors. If you have further questions concerning shipping outside of the USA please contact me.
***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.
***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.
***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.
***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.
***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.
***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.
***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.
***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.
***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.
***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.
***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.
***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
