    I picked this up for $6 at a local flea market a few years ago. Anyone have any idea of the age of this box?

      Genesee was founded in 1897 and became the Jell-O Company in 1923, so I would put a date of between 1897 and 1923 on it. Regardless of age, you did really good at $6.

      Thanks for the info! I saw the box and actually passed it up. A week later I went back because I had to have it, glad it was still there.

      I do too. Things these days are made to throw away. They just don't make them like they used to!

      I started working in the produce dept. of a grocery store in 1950. Most of our items came to us in wood boxes or baskets.Such as oranges,grapes,carrotts,lettuce,celery,apples and ect.Green beans came in a cone shaped basket and green onions in a barrel.Most of the vegetables also came packed in ice.The carrotts all came with the tops on them,when the first carrotts were introduced in plastic bags without the green tops we had a problem selling them.Hot house tomatos came in a 10 pound cardboard box approx 8"wide 18" long 6" deep with a wood handle.We used a lot of half bushel and full bushel baskets with covers.Also a lot of grocery items came in wood boxes such as canned corn beef.
