"Star Type" 5 Shilling Wooden Crate

Hidden amongst a recent buying spree, a vintage Star Type letterpress crate used to supply type?

With Star*Type on one side and 5/- on the other I am presuming that this used to be a box for transporting large type? Whatever I think it would be a shame for it to be simply discarded, so I have given it a good clean, and put it up for sale on my ETSY shop.

It's not too large, measuring in at 23cm x 15cm x 18cm in height.
