Apple Crate Labels - part 4

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.
