There had been a rift in the Pfleuger family, resulting in the creation of the Enterprise Manufacturing company, which later re-joined the other Pfleuger company. This is the reason for both names on the crate. I found this Pfleuger crate in the basement of a house that I bought in 1994 from Joseph Ignowski of St Francis, a suburb of Milwaukee Wisconsin. Joseph worked for Central Sales Corp. Of Milwaukee, enjoyed about 30 years of retirement and passed away in 1996.
He used the crate as a shelf, stacked along with other crates and positioned with the crate bottom against the wall. The condition of the crate is very good because it was stored in a dry basement. While remodeling the basement recently, the crate was removed from its place against the wall after all these years.It seemed like a time capsule, having been placed there most likely in the 1960s, possibly earlier. Based on the dates, and the years it has been in my possession, I estimate this item is well over 50 years old. The wood surface and labeling seemingly in the same condition as when they had been placed there so many years earlier. External 21 1/4 X 13 1/4 X 8 1/4. Internal 19 7/8 X 12 X 7 5/8. The wood boards are 5/8 tongue and groove style and fastened with nails; a solid, old school design. For sale as is; see the photos for condition of the item.
