Title Cream-Ila Ice Cream Cartons
Description Three ice cream cartons made of paper/cardboard. Beige colored due to age. On the front and back in blue print they say "Ice Cream" and have a flowery border around the edge. They have metal wire handles holding the sides together (like a Chinese takeout box). On the bottom is a logo of a tree on an island with the word "Menasha" and below that the words "Cream-Ila Reg. U.S. Pat. Off. Apex". On one of the top flaps is a triangular logo that says "1/2 Pint Minn. Liquid Fill to the Top". Inside is another layer of cardboard and flaps to add insulation.
