1930’s Original Suroy Low Industrial Storage Box – Set Of Four


1930’s original Suroy low industrial storage boxes – set of four. In 1853 the textile industrial revolution arrived in Loos, Nord France with the formation of the Esquermes factory by Alfred Thirez. The factories produced cotton thread for sewing and embroidery. Suroy was born from the practical need to provide hard wearing dry, robust containers that could store the textile raw materials. Made from a dusty earth red vulcanised/boiled card with rivetted construction and usually (but not always) marked with the Suroy Lion brand. Marked with orioginal distinct yellow Suroy label. Please note the original card bases have been replaced with wooden bases at some stage.
