ca. 1910 US ARMY AMBULANCE BOX - VERY GOOD SOLID CONDITION – WITH ORIGINAL RED PAINT:  This is a scarce early 20TH Century US Army Medical Department item, and this is a particularly nice specimen.   

Measuring 11.5” wide, 10” deep and 12” high, this metal chest is embossed with the Geneva Cross and “AMBULANCE BOX” on the front and back, and both of the sides are embossed with the caduceus and “MED DEPT USA”.  On one side the Patent Dates are embossed - the latest being 1910, and next to the list of dates is the “Union Made” trademark.   

This Ambulance Box has survived in very good condition.  The lid, all four sides and the bottom are in excellent condition and fully intact, without any holes or weak spots due to corrosion, nor are there any severe dents.  There is some wear to the paint and where the metal is exposed it has an even aged patina with no severe pitting.  As can be seen in the photographs below, the paint is mostly intact and still retains much of the original vibrant red color.  The lid is complete with the folding handle, both hinges function well and the front hasp is present and intact.   

This is a very good solid specimen that would display well while providing some much needed storage space for your collection room.   (0901)  $250
