Up for bid is this extremely well preserved Walter Baker & Co, Ltd Box/Crate. As you can see from the pictures this is a large box and I purchased a piece of glass to make it a coffee table. The glass is not included.

The crate "Walter Baker & Co. Ltd - Breakfast Cooa - Dorchester, Mass - 16 boxes, 1/2 pound cans - 6 pounds each - 96 pounds net

The box measurements: 23W x 19D x 21H

The one corner of the box has a piece missing, but I used this to my advantage by placing fake foliage inside the crate and a string of lights. The plug for the lights fits right through the opening. This is really a beautiful box/crate and would make a great conversation piece to anyone's collection. It's sturdy and held a large brass lamp quite well.
