Default Anyone have any unique or antique brewing gear?

I picked up this cool 1950s one gallon glass clorox bleach jug from an antique store yesterday for $8.00. I plan on making it my primary travel growler. Already have a (almost) one gallon batch of spiced cider fermenting away in it.


So who else has some unique or antique brewing gear?? Post pictures!!!

I don't have a picture handy, but my old man picked me up an antique bottle capper somewhere (probably from some old farmer's barn).

I pulled half a truckload of these bottles out of a garbage pit at our ranch. Even found some much older cool bottles. Sold them all to a "vendor" for too much.

I have an old jack stand bottle capper that I don't use, but it is cool

When I was at college one of my friends brought a 13 gallon antique carboy that we made cider in. It had "1939" printed on the bottom, so I assume that is when it was made. It took a #11 stopper.
