Delaware Cantaloupes Stock Label Vintage Melon Crate Label
This an unused stock cantaloupe label, there is no shipper, grower or brand name. To have a custom label printed you would contact the lithograph company, come up with a design and usually have a large number of labels printed. This could be expensive, especially if you only need a few labels. If you were a small grower, or just had a small amount of certain type of fruit, lithograph companies had a variety stock labels on hand and could make a quick printing run with black ink putting on the brand, etc. Nice melon image.
- 9.00 x 9.00 inches in size.

An original fruit crate label, not a copy, not a computer-printed art print. A vintage label intended to be pasted on a crate, but never used. Old stock from a warehouse find.
