This is a genuine original fruit crate label. This colourful, unused label for the White Star brand of melons features a...wait for it...white star in a blue circle on a bright red ground. This produce label was printed by the Stecher-Traung Litho Co. of San Francisco for the Kavanagh Distributing Co., Los Angeles, California.
This circa 1940s, vintage label measures 10 3/4" x 4 1/4" (approx.). This old product label is in very good, unused condition and is eminently suitable for framing. The colours are strong and vibrant with great period graphics.
Vintage food labels are great additions to advertising and ephemera collections. This one is of particular interest to collectors of agricultural and commercial art-related memorabilia. They make ideal "wall art" when framed for display in a study, office, or even the kitchen for a retro diner look.
