Item Description

1940’s Original Suroy Tall Industrial Storage Cylinder (Model 1259.2) 1940’s Original Suroy Tall Industrial Storage Cylinder. In 1853 the textile industrial revolution arrived in Loos, Nord France with the formation of the Esquermes factory by Alfred Thirez. The factories produced cotton thread for sewing and embroidery. Suroy was born from the practical need to provide hard wearing dry, robust containers that could store the textile raw materials. Made from a dusty earth red vulcanised/boiled card with riveted construction and usually (but not always) marked with the Suroy Lion brand. These large cylinders would probably have contained yarn. The cylinder shape minimises corners and joints which can snag. This container has exceptional cast metal handles and pressed metal tops and base details.
