Product Description
This boxes are patterned after two pear boxes found in the basement of my 1894 Holyoke, Massachusetts house.  Both had identical dimensions.  One originated from Placerville, California and the other from Portland Oregon.  These are also suitable for apples and other durable fruit.  Peaches, appricots and grapes would more often then not been shipped in shallower boxes to prevent bruising during shipment.  These are shipping boxes and would likely have been used from the early 20th century until the 70s when cardboard boxes took over.  Outside dimensions are absolutely correct.  Check out The Lable Man and other similar sites for the proper label artwork.  Label man has originals of the label that was on my box in the basement.

I recommend using #1 glass sand blasting beads or shot for fruit.  This is accurate for grapefruit, oranges, peaches and apples.  Use glass etchent such as Etchall dip 'n etch liquid to prepare them for painting.  Make an amalgam of paint ant the glass beads.  Spread this thin on a metal sheet.  Once dry scrape it off and grind it with a mortar and pestil.  Use a fine mesh colandar to separate the individuals from the ones that need further grinding.

Here are links for artwork I created to fit these models:
