Antique WOOD CHOCOLATE BOX TOOL Fred Rice California Chocolate
A genuine antique chocolate box,
wooden, from the California Chocolate Shop Ltd. with an assortment
of machine tools and brushes.
This antique wooden box was originally
used to hold chocolate made by the California Chocolate Shop,
Ltd. but has obviously spent a great deal of its life as a trinket
box in a garage or machine shop. Found in an estate sale, the
box contains several sheet metal pieces, a drill bit piece,
The real treasure here, however, is
the wooden box. A classic container long since replaced by cardboard,
this box is an original when things were sold in genuine wood
containers. The box still has the image of redwoods visible
on the top, as well as the logo and address for The California
Chocolate Shop. This box, done in classic styling, is the perfect
trinket box for an antique collection.
The box measures 7 x 4 1/4 x 2 1/4
inches, and has a total weight of 15 ounces.
Being an antique, this box is very
old and has been used to store all manner of items in a garage.
It has a number of chips and blemishes, though this only really
adds to the old-style look of the box. The hinges are functional,
if a little loose, but the box itself is solid and the hinges
can be easily repaired.
This wooden box will add a classic
sense of style to anyone's antique collection.
