I have an original De Laval cream separator salesman's sample with box - 1925, early 1930s. The farmer's pocket ledger speaks for itself. They were the John Deere dealers at the time in Elwood, Neb. In the photo is an ashtray from John Deere with the same metal as their John Deere Van Brunt drills. I would like more information on these pieces.
