Jumbo WWII insulated food container? unknown need input


Recommended Posts

At at flea market in Northeast GA today a dealer had three of these large containers. They resemble the M1941 insulated food container but are approximately 3 times as large and are 36" or so tall and about 24" inside diameter with thick insulated walls. They have two handles on each side. All three were marked on the bottom with different manufacturers and dated 42 and 43. The one photographed is NESCO 42 and also 18 (might be the volume in gallons?). The interiors are not lined and show some rust, the lids appear to be home made and not like they are the originals. I've been collecting WWII for decades and never seen anything like these. Does anyone have any idea?
