A G Hendy & Co Gift Box 2



Our A G Hendy & Co branded boxes will make your gift that extra special. Constructed from vulcanized cardboard with an internal aluminium frame and rivets for extra rigidity, they were originally made for a well-known central London museum in the 1950s to be used as archive boxes.  Never used, they were recently discovered in a forgotten store room belonging to the museum.  Their ox-blood colour and heavy-duty construction reflect our hardware store aesthetic, which makes them the perfect container for that special A G Hendy & Co gift.  Once unpacked, the box offers further very useful storage solutions for today’s office and home. Each box is labelled on the underside of its lid with Hendy’s Original British museum Archive Box c.1950 printed on our hallmark oval sticker.

If you are ordering items to be included in the box, everything will arrive beautifully tissue wrapped, each parcel inside the box secured with our hallmark oval blue sticker.  We can also add a name tag and any message you would like to include.

Length 27cm Width 16cm Depth 8cm

Please note: these are vintage boxes and although they haven't been used, they are not in brand-new condition as they have been stored for 60 years, and so may have some very slight imperfections such as minor scuff marks.
