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 Washington State brand apple crate label was used during the early 20th century. The lithographed blue label has an image of two large red apples in the center, as well as a gray-suited cartoon figure with a globe-shaped head proclaiming the apples the “World’s Finest.”
