Antique Working Apple Box in Old Paint

Antique Working Apple Box in Old Paint

  • This old apple box is the real deal - once used on a farm to gather and display apples for sale.

    The original apple red paint is on the interior with sky blue on the outside, - wonderful, rich colors.

    The corners have metal reinforcements at the top and bottom.  There once was a metal strap along one end - perhaps for mounting or securing.  Original paint is under this strap.  

    There is a small box shape on the inside at one end for unknown reasons, but the underside shows a metal retracting piece - must have been some mechanism to make it stay in place.

    15 1/2" x 12" x 4" deep.

    Found in Maine and dating from the early 1900s.
