Campbell's Tomato Soup Thermos

Description (Brief)
This metal, glass and plastic thermos bottle was made by Aladdin in 1973. It has a screw-on red cup lid and screw-on red stopper. The thermos is a replica of the red and white Campbell's Tomato soup can design. This thermos accompanies Aladdin's pop art bread loaf dome lunch box, object number 2001.3101.16. Andy Warhol’s Campbell Soup Can paintings, created in 1962, had permeated popular culture at this point, and this thermos may be a take on those paintings.
