We don't know for sure what the product was that came in this neat little box; it is nearly a perfect copy of the Armour Pork Brains crate we've also listed. It doesn't, however, has that stencil on the side.
What we do know is that it was used by ARMOUR AND COMPANY, GENERAL OFFICES CHICAGO, ILLINOIS and that name is stamped on one end of the crate, along with a partly faded paper 'Domestic Meat Label' announcing the product had passed inspection by the the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
DETAILS: The box measures 11.25 inches long; 9 inches wide and 4 inches deep. Bottom and side boards 1/4 inch thick are nailed tightly in place, so the box is sturdy!
CONDITION: It's in Very Good condition with some soil and stains inside. That can easily be cleaned to make a nice old store collectable! (t174)
