Vintage Skotch Cooler


SKU: 1537 Categories: ,

Product Description

This highly collectible vintage Skotch cooler was designed by American designer and artist Petra Cabot in 1951 for the Hamilton Metal Products Company of Hamilton Ohio. This one is in excellent shape with no dents or rust and very few scratches to the surface. Cabot designed the 4 gallon cylindrical cooler with a distinctive red, black and yellow tartan decoration, leather-look accents, and her signature near the upper rim. The cooler measures 11.25 inches in diameter and stands 14 inches high without handle. The insulated lid has two raised grabber handles. This deluxe model has a red plastic handle. Very clean inside and out.

The Skotch cooler’s fashionable design and solid cooling ability made it an iconic brand for camping trips and picnics through the 1970s when the company closed. According to The New York Times, the Skotch Kooler could keep ice cream firm for three hours without ice and was handy for fishing trips, keeping “groceries cold on the way to the lake and fish cold on the way back.” What a fantastic addition to your retro camping or tailgate gear! Also great for holding a plant on the porch.
