Gosh! you wont see another one of these in a hurry.
This is a rare survivor from a food shop which sold sausages in a Scottish food shop.
This would have been on display in a grocer's shop in the days before all items are pre-packed and kept in a chill cabinet - and you would have had daily deliveries of fresh food stuffs.
This unit is made of clear plastic with a deep white plastic base container for the sausage links to sit in.
The cover - advertises Hall's sausages - there is are two original big 60s stickers - and another 60s sticker saying delivered fresh daily.
The clear plastic cover would keep the contents underneath nice and clean - and you swivel the lid to take your fresh bangers out for a customer.
It has been a bit tricky to photograph - so I hope that you get the idea of the rather triangular & strangely angled shape of the unit.
It measures: the width is 17 inches - the depth is just over 11 1/2 inches. The overall height is 6 inches.
It comes with an old pricing sticker for Kirkpatrick's sausages - as photographed. This is quite large on a metal pin that you would stick into the meat - it is 4 inches x 3 1/2 inches - there is a swivel window to allow you to change your price.
A very strange piece of retail history - might look good in a vintage cafe - or in a vintage food stall - or just as a quirky storage unit in your kitchen.
Dont think that many of these things survived the 60s - they would have been thrown out when food was all pre-packaged and kept in fridges in the shop - not behind counters.
I will have to send to you in a medium size parcel with the Royal Mail - so this will push up postage costs a little on this item - but I want to to be safe in transit to you.
Sadly, this item would be for posting in the UK only.
