Antique 1950’s and 60’s reclaimed French apple crates, known as ‘Bushel Crates’, some are plain and others come with a variety of original producers names branded on the sides. These genuine vintage crates were in regular use up until recently, so they come with a rustic authenticity and no two boxes will be the same. Sizes vary slightly from batch to batch as you would expect with an original product sourced from an array of French farmers!
Don’t be surprised if there’s the odd blemish of countryside dirt, century old cobwebs or evidence of woodorm (not active) – we won’t be washing these crates; perfection isn’t always perfect, and their weathered appearance creates a charm we wouldn’t want to mess with. As a visual merchandising solution apple crates are perfect within a retail environment, but also a highly sought after gift for domestic home use.

Yes, as per your description - the items were not cleaned with some dirt / dust. Don't think our retail customers would be happy to place fruit in them.

By Oakmace Exhibitions Ltd
These crates are going on an exhibition stand at a large textile show, as part of a rustic linen cupboard display.
They are perfect for the rustic look, and once cleaned up a bit will look gorgeous with linens piled in them.
