Description Stollwerck Chocolate sprinkles fibreboard cylinder drum with light brown fibreboard and a yellow and blue label. The label says "Stollwerck. Chocolate Sprinkles. For Ice Cream and Confections. Manufactured exclusively by The Stollwerck Chocolate Co. Stamford, Conn." There is also a certificate of maker that says "This is a drum made of fibreboard, wood...and steel rims, and conforms to all..." There is a stamp on the drum that says "C. C. C. (Carpenter Container Co.) Sanitary-Sealed-Drum. Patented May 2, 1922." The bottom rim of the drum is black metal with some black duct tape. The bottom of the drum has writing in black, but it is somewhat illegible and there are some shiny accretions on the bottom. There are also small circular punctures along the top rim of the drum. There is no lid, and if there was it is missing or lost.

Summary Poor

Assessor Sammy Kailas

Notes This drum is in poor condtion. The exterior of the drum is stained, torn, and covered with gray linear accretions which could be paint drops. The top rim is peeling apart and malformed. The presence of duct tape may show evidence of the drum's fragility. The interior of the drum also has brown stains, which could indicate water marks.
