This shrimp shipping crate label was manufactured by the Dunbar-Dukate Company, founded in Biloxi, Mississippi in 1881. Dunbar-Dukate was a seafood packaging and distribution company. This crate label features a shrimp in the center, and claims to be cooked sufficiently for salads, mayonnaise, and all cold dishes. In 1912 Dunbar and Dukate were forced by court order to re-organize because of their anti-competitive practices in the oyster and shrimp market.
