Here is the Mother of all old wooden cheese boxes!! This huge box measures a whopping 15 ¾" in diameter and stands 12 ¾" tall. The box is in excellent condition for it's age. There are advertising stamps on the body and also on the lid that says: "Seymour & Peck Company – Chicago, Illinois – Guarantees That This Box Meets CCC Cheese Box Specifications".
Constructed with heavy-duty metal staples at the seam and on the rims, the box is strong and solid. There are some surface splits in the wood but these do not compromise the stability or integrity of the box at all. This box has a deep, rich nut-brown color from age and use, and the metal rim around the lid and the bottom is in good stable condition. Remarkably clean inside. This cheese box would look amazing in your general store collection, or anywhere in your country primitive home décor! An amazing find!
NOTE: This piece will require a large box, so expect potentially substantial shipping charges, especially if you live a long distance from Illinois. I will ship UPS Ground. I promise to refund any overage of shipping charges back into your Paypal account, if you choose Paypal as your payment option.
