Nice old wooden box or crate with advertising on 2 sides. It was used for shipping a dozen pairs of “77” storm proof barn door hangers. They were made by National Manufacturing Company of Sterling, Illinois. This same company also made the Big 4 barn door rollers.
The pine box is still sturdy but like most old shipping crates, it has knot holes and rough areas. The outside dimensions are 17 ¼ inches long, 9 ½ inches tall and 15 inches wide. Inside dimensions are 15 inches long, 9 inches tall and 14 ¼ inches wide. We gave the old wood a coat of clear lacquer to preserve it.
Old boxes like these are great for storage. Adding a pair of antique handles to the sides would also be a good idea.
