Copperton Lane Antiques & Collectibles

Circa: 1967
Country of Origin: US
Manufacturer: Ballonoff Metal Products
This sturdy Mid Century tin litho or enameled steel locking file or document box comes with the original key and label on the front. It measures 10-1/4 inches high by 12-1/2" wide by 5-1/2 inches deep and has a green woodgrain finish. The label describes the box as a Personal Porta File, made by Ballonoff Metal Products. In excellent, clean condition with no dents, dings, or rust.

When my daughter went to college, I searched everywhere for a file box like this for her but they're not made anymore. I ended up getting something smaller and far more flimsy at an office supply store. If you don't have a fire resistant storage box like this for your important papers that you can grab and go in the event of a fire, flood, or other emergency, you need this. See my other listings for a similar box decorated with college pennants.
