Very special and rare wooden box for packing and transport of bottles of ‘Delftsche Slaolie’, with on the sides images of an elephant holding a bottle of salad oil with its trunk and the NOF (Nederlandsche Oliefabriek) logo flanked by two salad oil bottles with the words 'DELFTSCHE-SLAOLIE OLIEFABRIEK DELFT'. Both scenes are 'framed' by a framework of unpeeled peanuts, alternated with green leaves. After the design of Theo van Hoytema that he made in 1905. Theodorus van Hoytema (1863-1917) was a Dutch draughtsman, lithographer and bookbinding designer, best known for his lithographic picture books with bird stories.

This is an antique box, with dents, scratches, discolourations and other minor traces of wear consistent with age and use. The box has woodworm holes (damage) around (as shown in the photos), but has been thoroughly treated for it. Have a good look at the images shown to get an impression of the condition before bidding. Shipping: registered and insured.
