Place of Origin

Maker Schrafft

Maker Details Schrafft's was founded as a candy company by William F. Schrafft in Boston, in 1861. PET milk purchased Schrafft's in 1967, breaking the ice cream, restaurant and cake, and candy operations into separate companies. Only the ice cream line survives, having been purchased by the LeSauvage family, owners of several ice cream labels.

Summary Good

Assessor Carly Sass

Notes The corners are slightly bent and the edges are worn. The previous owner must have stored rubber stamps in it becuase the boxed is labeled such in cursive.
