These gorgeous fruit crates/boxes came from orchards in northern Victoria and southern NSW. They were made for an elite group of orchadists around 50 years ago and were clipped onto the pickers harness around their necks and the fruit pickers picked the fruit into them. When they had filled the box they then stacked them into racks for storing in their coolrooms.
The boxes have the initials of the various orchards on them and the boxes are strong and sturdy and in fabulous condition for their age. We have been invited into quite a few homes and shown what people have been designing and building for a long time now from these fruit boxes and we have been quite amazed how ingenius and absolutely gorgeous they look when made into bookcases, book shelves and whole walls covered over with these boxes which are usually screwed together randomly and then screwed back on to the wall behind. We have only placed these fruit boxes here just to give a small example of how they look when used in this fashion, they can be turned any way and made into any shape, size or configuration, and filled with favourite books, CD's, ornaments, in the kitchen as canisters, herbs, spices, cups, plates, in the bathroom, towels, soaps, etc and the laundry, bedroom, lounge, dining the list goes on, in fact anywhere in your home that you need storage space that looks fantastic.
Fabulous decor for shops, cafes, restaurants and displays.
