Antique French Laundry Starch Box (hw1293)

A wonderful and original wooden advertising box which dates from between 1900 and 1920. The box, which has a hinged lid, is made from delightfully rustic wooden planks and originally held bags of pure rice washing starch. The lid and sides of the box are printed and semi-embossed with Remy, the maker's logo; a charming tabby cat licking his paw. All sides of the box depict the cat logo, with the front and back of the box bearing a banner design with Amidon au Chat and Diplome d'Honneur, signifying the starch was a quality product. The box has its original nail fixings and small hinges. There may have once been a little metal hook clasp for holding the lid closed, but this appears to be missing although the loop and fixing remain. This would have sat on the counter of a shop, perhaps a general home store or ironmongers.

A beautiful antique advertising box which will prove supremely useful for storing all manner of household items, whilst displaying its wonderful and attractive design. The box is approzimately 40cm wide, 26cm deep and 15cm high. In very good condition. Age-related wear/markings are minimal considering its age.
