Apple Crate Label

Apple Crate Label

Description (Brief)
This Lake Wenatchee brand apple crate from Wenatchee, Washington was in use around 1900-1940. The wilderness depicted on the Lake Wenatchee label invokes an American longing for nature through the pastoral image of snowy mountains, blue lakes, and a log cabin on the shore. The Pacific Northwest was renowned for its apple production at this time, and Wenatchee was called “the apple capital of the world.”
