After my last post on some vintage auto accessories I've found for my old cars recently, I did a little more searching and turned up this container on Etsy.com.
It's marked "Anthes" on the hinged lid, in the same script that's on the emergency reflector/flag box in my last post.
You can't see it in the photos, but also stamped in smaller print on the lid are the words
ANTHES FORCE OILER CO
FORT MADISON, IOWA
Pretty cool idea that for some reason must have never caught on. This is the first container of this kind that I've ever seen.
When you open it up, you have storage for a replacement headlight bulb, and in the lid you have a place to store a variety of replacement bulbs for accessories in the car.
I like it!
This was in pretty good shape when it came in the mail, but the bottom was missing paint and I quickly decided to spruce it up with the same shade of red I used on the emergency reflectors box.
Not much else to share right now, I'm still working on laying tiles throughout the basement, and it's taking a lot of time to cut and fit the smaller pieces around corners and along walls. It's hard to do very many of these at one time, so I'm pacing myself. I hope to have the main finished part of the basement done and cleaned up in the next few weeks.
