Shinn Ranch Brand Vintage Lodi Tokay Grape Crate Label


This grape crate label was used by H. D. Shinn & Son, Woodbridge, near Lodi, California.  Nice early label with image of bull dog, states, "what we have we hold".  Funny story, back in the 1970's when I was working in Lodi on the Tokay grapes, the grower had given me a pinch of these labels.  Twenty years later I was set up at an antique show in Lodi and this guy comes up and asks were I got the labels, from the grower I said.  He said, no you didn't, then come to find out he was the grower who actually did give them to me.  We didn't recognize each other, but remember the day we briefly met him at the packing house.

  • 4.00 x 13.25 inches in size.
  • Printed in the 1920s.

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.
