These rare vintage Remington cartridge boxes are a fabulous, innovative, wabi sabi storage solution for the modern home. Easy to store: tuck them underneath your sofa, table, or cabinet; stack them in or on top of a bookcase; slide them below the kitchen sink or bathroom vanity for storing solvents and detergents and sponges and the like; or simply place them on the coffee table to collect the remote controls and magazines that inevitably accumulate. Perfect for hiding items in plain sight.

The boxes are constructed from solid pine boards and hammered nails. Each bears red and green stampings from the manufacturer. I have one box left, numbered #5722. In the main photo it is the bottom box, in the top photo it is the box on the left hand side, and it is pictured in the last two photos. Heat and cold or moisture caused the upper corners of the wood on one side of the box to bow slightly outward, away from the nails. Rather than use boards, a single solid piece of wood was chosen for the bottom of the crate, which has a slight crack running about a third of the way across - it in no way affects the strength of the box. The small knot hole along the bottom edge is pure wabi sabi.

The front / back reads:
Remington
10,000 #5722
22 Short Spatter-less
Gallery Special
Kleaneore 250 per box

The sides read:
Remington Cartridges
non-corrosive Kleaneore Priming
Remington Arms Co. Inc. DuPont. Bridgeport Connecticut
Small Arms Ammunition 10 S PL. Made in USA

Each box also bears a unique black stamp:
X15R
C19P
X27H
C18P

The boxes are in excellent vintage condition, with minor marks of age that in no way compromise the structural integrity of the boxes. Wabi sabi elements include ink stains, fading text, chipped edges, rust stains, minor cracks. One box has a board that is slightly warped and bowed outward at the corners from shrink/swell over the years.

Boxes are priced individually. Price listed is for one box.
