I love this old thing, which would be perfect for organizing and hauling around pens and pencils and crayons and paintbrushes and whatever else one might need to stash. I think it was in a similar fashion for many years, with some splotches of paint on one side and a little inside as well. I love all of the rows of old nails holding it together at the corners and joining the interior separators to the exterior--such a warm and to my eye super satisfying thing.
12 1/2" l x 6 3/4" d x 7" t at handle; sides of box measure 4 7/8" tall. Much loved condition, structurally sound and sturdy and with many good years of use left in it.
