"ROSEACRE LAUNDRY LTD" blue yellow dry cleaning exchange box vintage 1930's England. Would make a beautiful addition to a vintage advertising or box collection or stunning laundry room display piece.
Blue and yellow advertising on front reads as follows: "Roseacre Laundry Ltd. Box charged 15/. if not returned. Bearsted. Phone Maidstone 87188. For really good dry cleaning!" Constructed of a heavy cardboard with metal corners on base and lid, and metal partly on rim of lid, pieced together with rivets. Large size. Rectangular shape. Manufactured in England. Roseacre Laundry Ltd. (renamed Roseacre Laundrette) and still operating in Bearsted Maidstone, England. We were not able to find any other dry cleaning advertising boxes. What a rare find!
There is some wear and tear, which just adds to the character and history of the box, notably box lid split on front right hand corner, but all in all in good condition for its age (please refer to photos).
