I've collected the Albert Schoenhut Circus set since I was 10 years old and now have over 300 pieces including boxes. This nice large old packing bax was made for the overseas market. Inside, it still retains its colorful cardboard inserts and the strong that held each clown, elephant, ladder, chair, etc in place. The label on the front is intact are labels on top and the sides. It was exported to Europe around 1900 and is one of my favorite pieces of my collection. Enjoy!
