C.1900 English Dominion Dairy Co. Golden Acres Butter railway transport box. Constructed from very stiff, waxed board and secured with metal tacks. It was used to post butter from the farms to the cities by railway and there is advertising printed on a green painted ground directly onto all sides of the lid. It gives explicit storage and shipping instructions. This box is remarkably very well preserved and is in clean condition with bold adverising. At some point it has also been re-purposed as a storage box to store contents from a master bedroom, as noted be the hand-writing in one corner of the box.
Condition: Excellent, clean and re-usable with a small amount of acceptable wear to the edges.
