Vermont is known for its maple syrup and with maple syrup of course comes maple sugar. Throughout the last century during sugaring season, tourists have flocked to the state to watch the sugaring process and take home syrup and sugar.
This unused Vermont Maple sugar box dates to the 1930’s or 40’s. “Guaranteed pure”, the sugar was made by Mr. and Mrs. R. A. Burnham at “The Old Homestead” in Windsor, Vermont, the original capital of the state. The box measures 4 ¾” x 2 ½” x 2 ¼”, designed to hold one pound of sugar. The box is made of pasteboard covered with a textured blue coated paper. The inside has embossed ecru lace paper to cover the sugar.
The box is in excellent condition with the exception of a split to one of the lid corners. This is a very nice piece of 20th century Vermont sugaring ephemera. Please examine the photos and feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
