24) French’s Bird Seed and Bird Biscuit Wooden Shipping Crate

Dove-tailed wooden shipping crate for 48, 10 ounce packages.  Crate is branded on all four sides.  Produced by the R. T. French Company of Rochester, New York.  Robert and George French opened a flour mill in Rochester in 1884.  George developed the mustard we know today in 1904.  I’d say this crate is c1900.  All four sides have the same stenciling.  12”x 11”x 13”.  One side panel has had a large chip glued back into place.  Unknown to most collectors, French’s produced a large line of Bird related medicines and products.
