They don't make 'em like this anymore. At 22 lbs of steely beauty, probably a good thing for everybody's sake... except chiropractors. Maker and brand is Cavalier Carry Cooler Senior.
I didn't think long before paying almost double book value off an eBay BIN listing. Size is 18"x 12"x 18". Surface and overall condition is excellent to near mint. And I've seen these routinely sell for big bucks, so in my opinion the guides undervalue the old picnic coolers.
This is my third Cavalier. I also have a 1940 Standard Ice Cooler and a 1950 Junior (commonly knows as an Airline Cooler). So I have 3 decades of Cavalier covered.
(My fourth cooler is a 1958 Acton Jr... Little Brother!)
This completes my Coca-Cola cooler collection.
