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 International Apples crate label was used by Thomas Hall & Sons of Portland, Oregon during the early 20th century. The lithographed label has a blue background with a central image of a globe.
