Food for Invalids & Children

Mmm, delicious: Shipping crate for “Imperial Granum Food for Invalids and Children,” c. 1880s. Remarkably well preserved, the box was apparently wrapped in fabric for a century, which kept its original paint and stenciling in excellent condition. The box seems to have been passed down to a child or someone particularly jealous of his possessions, and this “A. P. Cook” has penciled “My Box” on every side. A useful and sturdy wooden box for storage or a coffee table, and great advertising for an absurd Victorian foodstuff.



14.5 inches tall

25.5 inches long

15 inches deep



Very good antique condition, with some scratches, discoloration, and fabric remnants from when the box was uphostered.
