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
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”
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
