Apple Crate Labels - part 1

A post featuring apple crate labels from the USA, spanning the 1910's to the 1950's. These colourful illustrated labels were printed by lithography and were designed to be attached to the ends of wooden fruit crates. They usually identified the manufacturer, the type, class and origin of the fruit. Some were generic - overprinted by different companies or brands.



This is the second series of posts featuring fruit crate labels (See Citrus Fruit Crate Label series in the Blog Archive: February 2014).
This is part 1 of a 4-part post on Apple Crate Labels (1910s - 1930s) :
