Gay Rainbow Milk and Cream Pitcher
Who hasn't seen the Hazel Atlas Glass milk and cream pitcher which comes in blue, yellow, orange and green? A day doesn't go by that I don't spot several of these common kitchen collectibles in an antique mall or shop.
Popular Kitchen Premiums
There are so many of these Hazel Atlas milk pitchers around because they were premiums (free promotional items) from Kix cereal.
The advertisement (also a collector's item) read:
"FREE At Your Grocer's While They Last: This Lovely, Genuine Gay Rainbow Milk and Cream Pitcher" .
Value: Pitchers $6.00-8.00.
