Rectangular wooden crate with an open top. The crate has been constructed using planks of wood and the planks are held together with iron nails. The lid of the crate is missing.

There are stamped inscriptions on all four sides of the crate including the phrase, 'FLORA DANICA MADE IN DENMARK'. A metal disc inset in one end of the crate bears the raised inscription, 'DANMARK 1371'. There are also a further handwritten inscriptions on the base and side ('SSA PAPERS') of the crate.

The crate probably originally held a dairy product and may have been reused to hold the papers of the Sainsbury's Staff Association..
