Vintage Wooden Ex-Museum of Carlisle Storage Box in Black
Pickup currently unavailable
From rock samples, eggs and fossils to insects, plants and seeds. This collection was recently awarded designated status by Arts Council England, signifying its global importance.
The Designation Scheme identifies and celebrates outstanding collections, which deepen our understanding of the world and what it means to be human. The collection's ability to show how Cumbria's diverse fauna and flora is changing over time was an important factor in securing Designation status.
Hand made from wood with hand painted lettering, these boxes probably date to around the 1950s and are no longer suitable for continuing to conserve the objects contained within.
This particular box is a little more rough than the others we have available and features a dark blue / black colour with wear commensurate with age and use as photographed.
These boxes are a fantastic, unique storage solution. Not only aesthetically pleasing with an interesting history, they are very practical too.
Please see our other listings for other colour variations.
Measures approximately 50cm, 31cm deep and 26cm tall.
