Mostly Pix - Ravenswood

Recommended Posts

There's a variant of this box labelled 'Buddy's' giving away the contents. This non Buddy's version may have been used by other West Virginian makers, but these are definitely Ravenswood:

:thup:

While they could sometimes be backfilled by modern hands, I'm not aware of other companies using that exact box.  It appeared in Ravenswood advertising.  (Did you see the ad in post #1 of this thread?)

The ad called the box "OUR LEADER".

Thanks. It's odd there are no brand details on the box if it was only used by Ravenswood.

Sorry, nothing here (there was). I got as far as posting a picture of a really nice Ravenswood...it was a bit outside of focus, so I deleted it for now.  No worries.  I will post it when the photographs are good.

The variety in the brown ribbons is neat and I like seeing it attached to a Ravenswood box.

Does the shade of the base of the pair of blues stand out in hand like it does in their close-up?

Yes, in bright light it does, especially the one on the right. 

The brown ones are actually a shade of purple. I didn't notice at first but they do appear to be brownish in the pictures. I'll try to edit them and see if I can get a truer representation of the color. Not sure if it's the camera or the lighting that caused it.

Nice selection and the box is in nicer condition than mine.

Thanks, I just saw yours... must have missed it before. Nice group!
