Online Auction Description

Egg cartons were not invented until 1911. Eggs were usually delivered to the customer in the familiar wire egg basket. I have been unable to find any information on when and where metal egg boxes were used. The only comparable found was one recently put up for auction as a “Primitive” antique and guaranteed to be over 100 years old. It was of identical design but a different size and showing a bit more age.


The one dozen size metal egg carrier is still in the family of the original owner, discovered stored in a trunk in the attic of their summer cabin in Upper Michigan.


Note the clever sliding latch arrangement that keeps the box closed. The original tissues are still in the box, in each egg holder plus a small supply of unused ones, too. The little “cups” are made of card stock supported by metal rims.

The bottom and corners show some rubbing but no rust.


As you can see from the pictures, this metal box is in wonderful condition for its age.


This would be an excellent addition to your camping equipment to cradle your precious fresh eggs and protect them from breakage – as when Junior trips over it while chasing his sister.


Use it – or display it. Best of all, enjoy being the only person you know who has one!
