Here for sale is a great vintage storage box. They have been salvaged from the Geology Department of Birkbeck college which is part of the University of London. The storage case was used to store reference samples of rocks and fossils. Each has a lovely brass pull handle and index holder so can be stacked and used for filing. It is made from birch plywood with dovetail corners. Perfect for the storage and organisation of anything from shoes, toys to documents or collectables. 


Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
