Historic antique WWII era tool stores boxes from the Rolls-Royce and Bentley factory
in Crewe, Cheshire, England.
These antique toolroom combtailed construction wooden boxes came straight from the Rolls-Royce and Bentley factory.
The factory was built in 1938 to provide Merlin engines for the Spitfire aircraft which were being built in anticipation of war.
They were made by Nottingham Mills in nearby Robin Hood’s Sherwood Forest. They smell wonderfully of an engineering workshop !
They might look even better still with a light coat of teak oil or similar. Size is 12 x 6 x 4 ½ inches / 300 x 150 x 115 mm high., approx.
They would be very nice on the desk, in the den, workshop or boot / trunk of the motor.
In fact I have a row on a shelf in my garage for my cleaning materials and some in my study.
Pictures below along with one from the factory showing them in situ.
