Genuine Vintage Apple Crates from the Heart of England, we're really pleased to be able to offer a selection of really old geuine crates.
Vintage Wooden Apple Boxes have many uses, it's surprising just how versatile! Try putting one by the front door to store muddy boots or wellies after a walk or gardening.
A great idea for a picnic, put everything into crates and you then have a ready made table and chairs with you.
They're also really good for all sorts of storage around the house, garden, garden shed, and garage. A quick and easy way to create shelving.
If you're looking for a really different and special gift, a unique Vintage Apple Crate could be your answer.
All these Crates have varying degrees of print on them and most date back to pre decimalisation. So they're basically 1960's and early 1970's and although they've had a lot of use they are still quite sturdy.
The Apple Crates we now have are sourced from one of the major centres of Fruit picking in the country. They were used for all types of fruit and sometimes stored as many as thirty boxes high. These Crates are generally of a darkish colour rather like the Ambrose Leighton Crates that we first found.
Please note only one crate is included in the indicated price.
These Vintage Crates are made from wood, usually a variety of pine. They have metal trims and are nailed together.
L 53.5cm x W 36.5 cm x H 28.5 cm (These are approximate and do vary a little but only a little).
