An antique French crate. Chocolat Menier Company, France, c. 1800s. A rustic, primitive wood box with lid, blue label. Pharmaceutical company turned chocolate factory, one the the worlds largest in it's hey day, it is no longer, due to the eventual buy in out, in 1960, by other big companies, and eventually, Nestle. An amazing artifact, perfect in an addition to your industrial or farmhouse decor.

The box is complete with lid, however, the lid is not attached, and would be another wonderful decorative element, such as a wall sign.

The box is wrapped completely in the originally label, which clearly is worn a flaking away with age. The label or seal on the lid has various dates from 1800's, the latest that is clear is 1873. The company itself was founded in 1816, but it is clear that this crate date from the later part of the 1800s.

Dimensions:
11.5" x 8" x 5.25" tall, approximately (the crate is a bit misshapen) or 29.2 cm x 20.3 x 13.3 cm tall

Condition:
Good, RUSTIC, vintage condition. It is extremely delicate and looks like it may have even been repaired at some areas of where the wood sides and lid are splitting, over the years. It is however, held together with what appears to be the original nails. There is staining, chipping and peeling of the paper throughout, which only adds to the charm and amazing rarity of this French antique. This crate will be packaged extra carefully, do to the fragile nature.
