The Classic: The Stanley Thermos

Invented in 1913, the Stanley thermos, which evokes an ear when women sent their men to work with soup and a sandwich, is one of those often-overlooked design treasures. But the green steel bottle that American fighter pilots carried during World War II is as stylish as ever.
