A wooden egg crate dating to the late 19th to early 20th century, and made to transport eggs for Kearley & Tonge Ltd of Whitechapel. It is simply made out of wooden planks with wire reinforcement round the sides. It has a hinged lid with a hinged handle to the top. It would originally have had hasp fasteners to the front but these are no longer present. Interestingly this crate is marked as being made by W Lusty & Sons, a company that, a couple of decades later would become well known as the producers of Lusty Lloyd Loom furniture.
This crate is useful for storage and is a great decorative piece.


  • H: 27cm (10.63in)

  • D: 32cm (12.60in)

Welcome to Ginger Tom's Curious Eclectic.  We are a husband and wife team, both with a lifelong interest in antiques. Our business stems from the usual collector turned dealer scenario.  As our own collections grew, it became obvious we needed to redistribute some items in order to make space to buy new treasures to feed our own habit.

Buying to sell seemed the natural progression from this. We have been involved in buying and selling since 2004, but have only recently taken the decision to establish an online presence. We don't specialise in any particular area, but our interests do influence our stock purchases to a degree.

Our stock includes a varied mix of unusual antique, interesting vintage and stylish contemporary objects that would suit many different settings. Our key criteria is that we only buy, and therefore only sell, items that we would have in our own home and believe that if we like something, others will too.

Our opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
