Rare Vintage 1957 Wooden Haig & Haig “scots Whisky” Crate Great Condition:
Vintage Wooden Haig & Haig “Scots Whisky” Crate from 1957
This is a vintage wooden Haig & Haig “Scots Whisky” crate made in 1957 from Haig & Haig Ltd. of Markinch, Scotland in great condition with well printed and preserved printed text. The black printing is still in very clear and intact condition. The “57” in the upper left-hand corner on one end indicates that the scotch was released for sale in 1957, at which point it was placed into the crate for shipping and sent to the USA. The “RED STRIP STAMPS” declaration printed on the bottom is unusually intact, clear and sharply printed (see bottom panel).
We took some steps to enhance the crate, including:
• Careful disassembly of the entire crate
• Sanding of the bottom panels on both sides
• Sanding of all 4 side panels, mostly on the inside. Light sanding is occasionally done on the outside panels to remove stains, paint, marker, pen, etc. with great care to avoid damaging the printed text
• Reassembling the crate with new nails
• Application of a clear, satin (non-glossy) polyurethane to all panels, inside and out
All of the wood is original to the crate. New nails were used to reassemble the crate as the original nails from 1957 were quite rusty.
Note: sometimes we choose not to use the original nail hole if it would compromise or weaken the wood in any way. Often the nail in the original hole caused the wood to split, which we will repair, so we avoid placing a new nail in a hole where we know it wood has been weakened or will split the wood again.
The crate sits well, is very sturdy and will not come apart.
Measurements (approximately): 13-1/8” x 13-1/4” x 9-3/4” (L x W x H).
