This thermos was recently inherited from my uncle, it originally belonged to my great aunt. It is Icy-Hot brand, a small Cincinatti company. It is probably missing a lid, but it must have originally had a cork because the grooves towards the top are not actually a spiral screw pattern. The cork says Thermos Brand, but my research shows that Thermos merged with the Icy-Hot company in 1925, 16 years after this bottle was produced, so the cork must be from a different bottle unless the Icy-Hot company used corks produced by Thermos. Anyone have an idea?
