The company was founded by Gail Borden, Jr., in 1857 in Connecticut as “Gail Borden, Jr., and Company.” Its primary product was condensed milk. They developed the dairy side to include cheeses over several years.
This is a typical American wood cheese box. These have had a small brass knob added to one end to use as a drawer. At present we have 12 similar boxes. Two of the boxes have a divider across (one of these has a chip out of the back).
All four sides have the name Borden’s Cheese in green text and other text in red. These boxes are the larger 5lbs boxes.
