VINTAGE Buffalo N.Y. stamped wooden crate box 7Up soda pop Bright Colors, Sharp:
This sale is one wood and metal 7Up soda pop box / crate.
The box measures 17.75 inches long, a little more than 11.5 inches wide and 4.5 inches tall. The box is made out of a lighter color wood and has a metal strap measuring a little more than .5 of an inch wide on each side of the box. The straps are riveted into the box.
The colors on the box are sharp and bright. Not sure what the method of application is, but the red lines and the 7Up logos seemed to have been embedded or etched or stamped into the wood. When you run a hand over the sides of the box, you can feel the indentations for the red lines and the logos. This is also true of the “BUFFALO, N.Y.” on each side of the box. You can feel that the letters were stamped into the wood. The only color on the box is red.
Not sure what era this box is from. Perhaps 1960s or 1970s?
Overall, the box in is good to very good condition. The wood has some rough patches, which probably could give a person a sliver, but these rough conditions seems to be more because of the type of wood (not sure what type of wood) or how the wood was cut or finished. There are some marks and wear on the box. Also, one of the metal straps has been crunched a little bit; please see photo for this detail. Very solid box.
Thanks for checking my sale.
