The best vintage Milk Container for your home decor
Milk cans or milk pails, or dairy cans form the three major varieties offered by the store for online sale. These cans trace their origin to 6,000 years ago and domestication of the milch cattle. It is a clear understanding that with the rise of the cattle population in India, the demand for these products saw an immediate spurt. However, with urbanization, these cans went out of business.
The Milk Container or cans were designed to hold the dairy and use it for transportation. These products have transformed into a collector's edition instead of being a mainstream product.
Vintage yet unconventional Milk Containers
India has a rich association with dairy products and Milk Container. The nation has a rich legacy of excellence in designing these containers using high-end craftsmanship and metals like brass.
The most notable feature of a milk can is that these have a wide bottom that quickly narrows at the top. This design was functional and aesthetic as it gave a specific identity to the cans and the narrow top helped the milk from sloshing from the lid's cap.
These distinct qualities are imbibed into our products by the leading craftsmen who understand the local environment and lay the same out on high-end metals like copper, brass, and steel. These containers also carry the reinforced bottoms around the rims (as available in the original ones) and, as a result, are functional and practical. By using a counterclockwise motion on the bottom rim, the need to lift these containers is eliminated.
This unique design of the Milk Container traced its origins to 18 century England when women used to transport fresh milk from the cows to customers instead of the bigger versions that were designed later for use on railroads. It meant that milkmaids could carry unlidded pails on the ends of the yolks. These vintage cans were heavy-duty equipment, and each one weighed 100 pounds.
The larger cans came into being in the early 19 century and could be transported in large numbers by men using milk carts. These were quickly replaced by dairy utensils that were extremely wide at the bottom and could compensate for the demands for rail transport.
