An original vintage shop delivery and display box for Gipsy Black Lead, manufactured by Hargreaves Bros. & Co. Ltd of Hull. 

This unusual pine box has developed a good patina over the years, the paper labels have the usual scuffs, marks, scratches and losses as expected from an item of this age and material but the colours are still good, particularly to the inner label which has been protected from fading. The box is still sturdy and usable, the simple bent wire hinges have had running repairs in the past but are well attached. A rare example of antique advertising which is also still functional.

Circa 1910
