Kerogas Burner Wick Packaging
This is the cardboard box that a Kerogas wick is packaged in. The box is constructed of a single piece of brown cardboard. The top and bottom fold into the sides. All sides are printed with text in black and red. There is a heart shaped inset illustration of a Kerogas burner on the front and back sides.
Stove & wicks were purchased by Ernie Bruno's grandparents who lived at the corner of 32nd and Lowell in Denver.
