It's coming to you exactly as it came to me. It's a bit less than perfectly clean inside but I'm leaving it EXACTLY as it was so you can do with it exactly as you please. Appears to me to have been repainted at least once or twice and touched up in places - makes for even more appeal! It was created from an old wooden fruit crate. The back features some partial lettering. The first two words are only partials - ' _____eet _____derized fruits '. I have no idea what it could be. Perhaps Sweet is the first word. Any ideas?
