1930’s Original Suroy Very Tall Industrial Storage Box – With Grab Handles


1930’s original Suroy very tall industrial storage boxes. 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. Please note the original card base has been replaced with a wooden base at some stage. Perfect for hall storage, dry umbrellas and so on. Priced individually. Suroy marked.
