A charming little wooden box that originally held 5 pounds of welding compound and was made by the Anti Borax Compound Co. of Fort Wayne Indiana. The trade name of the product was EZ and it was "for all grades of steel".

The box measures 4 7/8 inches high (12.4 cm), 4 inches wide (10.2 cm) and 5 3/8 inches long (16.3 cm). It is quite lightweight -- probably made of pine-- and has a nice golden-y brown color. The sliding lid moves easily and the interior is rough sawn. The box is joined by a series of mortise and tenon at the corners. There is a patent date of May 27, 1902 on the box, just above the EZ trademark.

The box is in good vintage condition. There is a chip of about 2 inches long on the top left side corner where the lid slides in and out -- it does not affect the lid staying on or coming off.

Great for display and for hiding lots of little treasures.

Please contact me with any questions. Thanks!
