As many of today’s unique designs, Jerry Cans origin from a time with limited resources and a necessity to create successful designs. One of the truly important historic transportation products is the Jerry Can – a nickname created by the British and US forces. The name “Jerry Can” refers to its German origins, “Jerry” being wartime slang for “Germans.” This “up-cycled” 1970s era Jerry Can is sure to bring an element of modern design and historic significance to any room.

The original German can name was “Wehrmacht-Einheitskanister” for “armed forces unit canister.” The Jerry Can was developed in the 1930s for military use. The fuel had to be efficiently stored and transported to aid soldiers and war machines at the front lines. Without fuel, tanks could not drive. And without tanks, the war would be lost.Having adapted the Jerry Can design for the US Military, President Roosevelt said “Without these cans, it would have been impossible for our armies to cut their way across France at a lightening pace, which exceeded the German Blitz of 1940.”
