Vintage Wooden Crate Box with Red Cross Logo
Vintage old wooden pine box with rope handles made in an ammunition box manner with wooden braces on the outside. Red cross symbol on each end and stencilled writing on the back. Looks to be genuine: it's possible someone has put the logos on later but I don't think so. The Red Cross would certainly have used these military boxes as they're designed to be robust for cargo planes and lorries etc. They may still do. This has cross head screws throughout it otherwise I'd have thought it older. I've quoted 1950's but can't really be sure. Condition is good structurally; cosmetically it's quite rough and ready as is normal with these, though better than some; it was easy enough to rub it over with wire wool without snagging too much. The inside is fairly clean if a little stained.
Barnaby's of Battle has clarified that the Vintage Wooden Crate Box with Red Cross Logo (LA368937) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1950's
