Old Time Thermos: What It was Used For
The old time thermos was used to keep drinks or food hot and keep them fresh. The thermos I'm describing has a very neat picture on the front and depicts a sailing yacht. It promotes a jar full of cold drinks or hot drinks. When the lid opens, the nickel-spouted top shows a cork stopper on the top lid. It is neatly decorated with nice red wood grain. The size of the thermos is 10 inches tall. Its condition is generally good, though some nickel is worn in some places, with metal showing through. The cost was $3.00, and it was a popular item in the general store in the 1900's because it kept food and drinks hot. The thermos was used by many people and they loved it. Many people kept soup or water or other drinks in the beautiful thermos. Instead of eating or drinking right away, people would not eat it because the food would be able to stay hot and fresh for 2 hours at the most, depending on the kind of food and the temperature. The old time thermos was made of a thin type of pot glass and leather material.
