Apple Crate Label

Description (Brief)
Labels are an important marketing device. They often go beyond merely identifying contents and are designed to help establish brand distinction and generate customer loyalty for a largely interchangeable product.
This Jay Dee brand apple crate label was used by the J.D. Hamilton Fruit Company of Wenatchee, Washington during the early 20th century. The lithographed blue and white label has an illustration of two red apples on the branch.
