California Citrus Washing Powder Citrus Soap Co. San Diego, CAL Ready To Hang Wall Hanging Recycled from a vintage wood crate.

I purchased this sign just as it is many years ago in an antique store. I hung it in our laundry room and it looked great there. Then we moved and I stored it in our basement for a very long time. I have no place to hang it now, so I am hoping someone else will love it.

It was varnished on the front but not the back. Then, they added the hanger to make a really cool decorator sign that cannot be duplicated. And, don't you just love the knothole?

There is lots of history surrounding this old crate side. Research showed me a larger crate side that had housed 48 boxes in the National Museum of American History. I also found an old photo of a truck loaded with Citrus Soap. More research told me that a Citrus Soap Co. factory was built in SanDiego in 1920. I found a site where you can order photos of the site from 1930.

Measurements are:
15 inches across
10.5 inches high
.75 inches deep

A piece of American history probably deserves a more important place to hang than the laundry room. But, I did love seeing it in mine years ago.
