Im an antiquer and came across this box.At first we thought is was a shipping crate from The Root company (beekeeper supplier) ,but after some research and further inspection ,i think its one of the bee boxes sold by the Root company.If i threw some pics up,think anyone here could say "yup,thats what it is all right" ?

I hope im putting this in the right forum....

I found what appears to be the box 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 x 1 /78 listed in an old root beekeeping supplies catalog ,so im even more sure now....BUT someone saying "yup, thats one" would be nice.

4 1/4 x 4 1/4 x 1 7/8 is the size of a basswood section for comb honey.
