Crate - Wooden, Large, circa 1960s Reg. No: HT 5333
- Large wooden crate, circa 1960s. It was used in domestic wine production by the Di Benedetto family at their home in Thornbury, from the 1960s to 1991. In the early years the wine making was very much a family affair, with everyone contributing to the annual ritual. As the family dispersed, Vito di Benedetto continued to make wine once every three years, with the assistance of Maria and often his daughter Angela, until his death in 1991.
- Wooden crate made from three slats at bottom, three horizontal slats on each of the longer sides, and two vertical slats on each of the shorter ends.
- Acquisition Information:
- Donation from Angela di Benedetto, 2004
