Lost in Space Thermos

Description (Brief)
This metal thermos bottle was made by Thermos in 1967. It has a red plastic lid and stopper. The bottle is decorated with colorful animated scenes depicting a lift off of a rocket, the orbit of a command module, and the re-entry of the module into the atmosphere. Instead of creating a new thermos to go along with the Lost in Space box, Thermos re-used the imagery from the Orbit thermos, object number 2001.3100.13.02.
