Seller: jfxclusive (60) 100%, Location: Manchester, Connecticut, Ships to: US, Item: 173735426541 Antique "Cream Gage for Milk Cans" designed by C.L. Colby and patented on January 1, 1884. This is a very unusual piece. The cream gage measures approximately 12" tall and the diameter at the opening is approximately 8-3/4" across. This was designed primarily to have a smooth interior so as not to contaminate the milk and to allow for easy and thorough cleaning. The attached patent gives specific details about the design and purpose of this cream gage. There is some damage to the glass gauge but it is otherwise in good condition. I displayed this piece at my booth when vending at the Brimfield Antique Show last year and asked people if they could identify it. Amazingly, with all the seasoned antique dealers and patrons at that infamous show, nobody knew what it was. Add this to your collection or use it as a conversation piece. An interesting throwback to the 1800s. Please see photos for up-close details and condition. Happy to answer any questions. Thanks for looking! Original/Reproduction: Original
