    It was a very popular model and came with a thermos that would hold a couple cups of soup or coffee, etc. You could see any number of them in the break room where blue collar workers ate lunch back in the 1950s and '60s. Monty

    That is the kind of lunch box most people used until the 70s, then most changed to the small plastic coolers.
    They also made plastic lunch boxes similar to that metal one.

    After looking at the prices on etsy, I better dig my old one out of the shed and dump the screws and bolts out of it.

    We still used those in the 90's.. They came with a small thermos which we replaced with the large stainless one.

    I used to watch those episodes of "The Life Of Riley". William Bendix, Tom D'Andria as Gillis his neighbor, Sterling Holloway, Wesley Morgan as "Junior" his son, Lugene Sanders as "Babs" his daughter. Martin Milner played "Babs" boyfriend...…...Can't remember who played his wife. So now, I know your age but you know mine.

    Those black lunchboxes were popular in the early 50's. We lived in Norwich, Conn. which was home to the American Thermos Company. When I was a kid my father worked for Thermos which is the company that made the "Thermos bottle" famous. He carried his lunch to work in one of those black boxes......

    My dad has one like that! I don't know what brand. It's out in the garage somewhere.... Are old lunch boxes like that worth a lot? Is it worth looking for my dad's to sell online? Or do I just send it to Goodwill next time I see it?
    Just an adult toy collector looking for help IDing, pricing and selling some of my dad's things.

    Welcome Jer, post WWII. My dad carried one as far back as I remember. I may know what happened to the handle.
    If the guy walked through the shop and set the box down in the work area, when the whistle blew and he ran back
    to get it he'd grab the handle in a big hurry only to find it came off in his hand. The box would have been screwed,
    welded or fastened down with carpet tape and would often need to be chiseled loose. This went on in every factory
    and work shop in the country for years.

    Best wishes!
