Product Description

A cool original picnic cooler…

Dating to the mid part of the 20th century, circa 1950s, this is a rare example of a Penguin cooler box, of Australian origin. Made in metal, and with an insulated interior, this may have some wear and tear, yet it’s perfectly functional. For the dudes who love a picnic or a trip in the camper van, this is a cool piece that adds a bit of rust and authenticity!

It is tatty in places, yet it’s in full working order, and ready to filled up for a summer road trip or a picnic in the park (albeit we know Winter is coming :o) Naturally the cool box is designed to take ice, therefore the original ‘drip tap’ (located on the side), is in good working order and water tight

The metal handle acts as part of the lid and a locking mechanism… Simply lift the handle and move it to one side to reveal the interior. The general structure is good and the functionality on point. The insides are generally nice and clean and the outside reveals a used or weathered patina…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. There are some surface scuffs and dents across the piece along with some paint chipping. Some areas are a little dirty and tatty and there is some rusting in areas. The insides may look a little tatty, but it’s just aesthetics. We simply feel this adds to its charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
