Early post-war period collectable. Heavy duty hinged metal box manufactured by Western Electric. This mountable box was originally intended to house electrical/telephone wires. Brown painted metal with a strong snap-lid closure. Holes on the bottom for mounting.


Measures approximately 10" long x 2.5" high x 4.25" deep

This piece is in excellent vintage condition. The hinges are smooth and the snap closure is tight. No rust or dents. Some minimal surface scratches on the paint. See photos.

This is a great collectors item as well as a useful box to store art supplies, fishing gear or anything else that needs to be safely tucked away.
