Incredible early century D.M. Ferry & Co. Choice Flower Seed packet box, out of Detroit, Michigan. This gorgeous box features a printed gold ornamental crest on the outside cover and a colorful, vibrant paper flower label pasted inside the lid. This box would have originally been shipped to the customer full of seed packets for use; however, it is now empty and clear of any original product.
This box is in very good condition for its age, with the printed paper label being the best preserved. There are some scratches and blemishes to the outside of the box, particularly across the printed crest--where the graphic has flaked off partially. Inside, the box is clean and well taken care of. The main paper label has some light deterioration to the bottom edge and upper right corner, but the main image is unobscured. A smaller price label pasted below has been partially peeled off, but a small amount still survives. This beautiful box speaks to a time when farming and agriculture were incredibly important in America and it survives into today to tell part of that story.
