Vintage Copper Grease Container From The 1950s For Sale

Listed is a grease container from the 1950s. Housewives would save their cooking grease to make homemade laundry soap. The strainer would help to save clear grease. I remember my mom using this container. When it was full, she would empty it into a larger container (stone crock) and then when the crock was full would make soap. If the crock wasn't full be the time laundry soap making was needed, my mom would occasionally buy grease from household sales to use. The soap was poured into pans and allowed to cool and harden. Then it was removed and wrapped in waxed paper. On laundry day, my mom would use a large coarse shredder and shred enough soap into her old Maytag Wringer washer. guess I got carried away with memories of childhood. Getting back to the grease container, it measures 5" high and 3 3/4" in diameter. It is 60 years old and does have some ding and dents from much use.
