Setter Brand Vintage Exeter Fruit Crate Label, Sawdust Pack, Dog


This fruit crate label was used by Exeter Fruit Association, California.  Image of Irish Setter Dog, this label would have been used for grapes. They used to pack grapes in sawdust for long term holding in cold storage.  This was before importing grapes from the southern hemisphere.  Grapes were very seasonal so to extend the season they would try to keep them as fresh as possible in cold storage. 

  • 5.75 x 13.00 inches in size.
  • Printed in the 1950s.
  • Mint condition.
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.
