Case sizes

If someone were to be designing and building a cellar, it might be useful for them to have access to the dimensions of a range of different cases. What better place to record them than here?

Churchill 1985 (12) - 245 x 305 x 415

Warre 1983 (12) - 310 x 320 x 395

Ferreira 1963 (12) - 260 x 370 x 405
