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 U-Like-Um brand apple crate label was used by the Cashmere Valley Growers Inc. of Cashmere, Washington during the early 20th century. The lithographed label has an illustration of a Native American on a horse drawing his bow while two deer run away from him. Native American imagery was frequently depicted on fruit crate labels to evoke the idea of rich natural produce.
