this lovely vintage industrial shallow wooden crate came from the workshop of the great-grandfather of a friend...it is branded "zebra grate polish" in black typography on the short ends, and has the remnants of a peeling and faded paper label on one of the long sides.

launched in the 1890s, Zebra was used in Victorian homes to clean and black the fire grate, easing the life of the servant - how helpful!

loads of character, but a wee bit fragile with a couple of cracks in the base. would be fine for storage if sitting on a surface however.

measures approximately 32.5 cm long by 22 cm wide and 6.5 cm high

great mismatched pair with this crate: https://www.etsy.com/listing/101497001/vintage-industrial-shallow-wooden
