This orange crate has been in my family's houses for roughly the last thirty years, looks very old. It is currently being used to hold extra towels in the bathroom. It says Russo's Desert Citrus and is about 36 inches tall and about 18 inches deep and wide. On the large orange under the logo it says "Vitamin C Galore". I haven't found anything on the company, but in the lower right corner it says Brawley, California. Anything anyone could tell me would be appreciated.
