This an old gift box from the Borden's Company in Van Wert, Ohio; The World's Largest Cheese Factory. These were like the Hickory Farms gift boxes of today but these were full of Borden's products and given to the company employees at Christmas time. It is made of a heavy cardboard with a green paper covering. The lid is slightly padded and has an embossed design with a wonderful portrait of Elsie in gold. It is empty.
It measures about 11 11/16 at the widest point by 9 3/16" by 3 1/4" high. And overall it is in nice condition with minor use. The lid has a paper hinge which is cracked and torn about 2" at each end from years of use. The sides of the box are bowed out slightly. The bottom of the box has normal scuff wear.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
