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 Red Beauty brand apple crate label was used by the Imoto Brothers of Lindsay, California during the early 20th century. The label was lithographed by Stecher-Traung of San Francisco, California. The label has an illustration of two golden apples with some leaves surrounding it.
