Measuring 10" high and 3" in diameter, this 1909 Vacuum Flask Thermos by the Icy-Hot Bottling Company of Cincinnati Ohio (the precursor to the American Thermos Company) Is in remarkable condition. How this piece survived with it's Mercury Glass insulation intact is a mystery. The outside, which has minor tarnishing that could be (criminally) removed, is dent free with its rivets still tight and its lanyard ring still affixed.

 

This 102 year old piece has a decidedly steam-punk feel and is, still today, as displayable as it is functional
