This ice chest was custom made for my grandparents in 1926 by the furniture maker John Sinclair in Sydney. It is constructed of maple & is in excellent condition. The main compartment is lined with enameled steel & the ice box appears to be stainless steel. There are wire trays in the main compartment. It has the original ice tray (that the block of ice sat on) & a small steel "umbrella" that I believe was used to break the fall of the dripping water from pipe carrying the melted ice water. ...
