    I'm not sure if there's any history or value to these old milk jugs? I have 6 varies ones all with different names or unlabeled on them. Thought about repurposing them for my aunt's.

      I don't see any milk jugs. Usually farmers brought these into the creameries and they were used for cream or unfiltered milk which the creameries sold the products made from the milk and cream which they processed. We used these into the late 70's when my father retired. They were used many times over the years. Lately my friend an artist, was using them to paint beautiful work. Other people still buy them.
