Seller: malocchio (2,823) 100%, Location: Imperial, Missouri, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 132852686167 Offered here is a circa 1880's wood shipping crate used to ship WASHBURN GUITARS! In the 19th century, Washburn guitars where packed in straw and shipped in these wood crates; many aboard horse-drawn wagons; as well as by ships and trains. The crate measures 17" by 17 1/2" by 46" and is very sturdy, and in excellent condition! There are huge logos on the front, back, and top of the crate that picture four children (one black) playing all types of stringed instruments, with the caption: "Mandolins-Guitars-Banjos. Best In The World. A Beautiful Souvenir Catalogue Free". There is Advertisement on all sides of the crate! Extremely RARE and probably one-of-a-kind! I have owned it since 2005 so this is fresh to the market!. This would make a wonderful display piece along side a vintage instrument collection! THIS IS FOR LOCAL PICK UP ONLY. It must be paid for at close of the auction and picked up within 30 days. I am located in the St. Louis, Missouri area.
