Salada Tea Crate

Salada Tea Crate


Salada tea was founded in 1892 by Montreal businessman Peter C. Larkin. Larkin's main innovation was to replace tea sold loose from tea chests with a product packaged in foil. This helped establish a uniform flavor for Salada and the promise of consistent freshness to its drinkers. It became one of the leading teas in Canada and the northeastern United States. After the 1950's the brand went on to be bought and sold by other companies ultimately ending up owned by Unilever in the present day and being marketed as Red Rose tea.

This crate is in solid vintage condition with no major flaws except for part of the edge of one long side having been broken off as pictured. With all the scuffs and dings you'd expect to find on a crate that has seen use for over 100 years, but no loose boards.

Measures 14" x 19.5" and holds records perfectly

Returns and exchange details

Due to the nature of vintage items being used, we cannot guarantee that any item will be in perfect working condition. Oftentimes vintage items need a bit more creativity to operate than a brand new item and can have unique quirks like a stiff button, or wiggly latch. We do our best to thoroughly test and describe the condition of every item we sell.
Returns will be handled on a case by case basis, and partial refunds will not be given under any circumstances.

Returns must be shipped back at customer's expense and original purchase and shipping will be refunded after a case is opened with Canada Post.
