This old wooden crate has slots or dividers for 24 glass bottles of cola. The red painted background of the sides offer the early 1970's script trademark in white. The inside also offers the trademark lettering but in red. Towards the right corner of each long side; the location of the maker or perhaps the bottling company is also found in red along with the year; Chattanooga, 1971.
This particular carrier has seen some weather as indicated particularly by the bottom slats. The broken middle slat was secured some time along the way. The metal end braces show some rust and the weathered wood gives the rustic appearance that only comes naturally.
Sitting up on its side, the crate is a great way to display small collectibles. Each "cube" is about 2 1/2" square and 3" deep. The overall outside dimensions are approx. 18 1/2" x 12" x 4"
The crate is rather heavy. Shipping weight is 6 pounds
