Wooden crate - Smack

75.00

Red wooden crate from a company called スマック (Smack) that makes cream soda. The company is still around and this piece should really be displayed in their museum if they had one. The tooth of time has revealed a curious fact: On one side of the crate the paint has given way to a layer beneath. What we see tells us a lot about Japan: Coca Cola! Japan has gone through industrialization largely by copying from other counties, especially from America. This crate is an amazing witness of this.
