With an exciting history dating back to the late 1800s, it is no wonder vintage Spanish crate labels are so incredibly collectible today!

Crate labels are commercial labels that were intricately designed and lithographed before being pasted on the ends of wooden shipping boxes. In order to attract more attention on crowded shelves, manufacturers began commissioning artists to create lively and one-of-a-kind illustrations representative of both the product, shipping origin and era in the early 1900s. Meaning, each shipping crate had the luxury of sporting a myriad of unique designs. How fascinating!

If it isn't....Sandwich Man! Used as a whimsical character to advertise the sale of Eufruco Ltd. sale of Oranges, 'Sandwich Man' and his iconic stepping-out stance could be found lining any grocery store shelf in the early 1900s. Wielding a top hat and his famed sandwich board sign... we can't help but want to buy whatever fruit he's selling! Printed by Lit. S. Dura, in Valencia, Spain. 

Condition: Very Good. Minor age spots along bottom border. Light border wear and creasing along top border. Small chip in upper right hand corner. 

Year: c.1920 - 102 years old

Size: 10.75" x 10.25" (27cm x 26cm)
