This one is from Rodelle Farms in Roselle Illinois. It does have a phone number so it is probably from the 1950's. I believe this dairy is still in operation.

    I am from Illinois and I remember when they changed the telephone numbers from a two letter prefix to all numbers.

    I fill mine with with Epsom salts so it looks like milk and use them for door stops.

    This one looks well preserved. The cup o graph is neat.
    Thanks for sharing it.
