Vicente Monti Apples- Spanish Crate Label

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 in the early 1900s. Meaning, each shipping crate had the luxury of sporting a myriad of unique designs. How fascinating!

Advertising premier select apples from Holland, this darling illustration certainly has us excited for the deliciousness in store! With Dutch distributing company P. Van Hoeckel & Co. teaming up with Spanish company Vicente Mont de Carcagente, we're sure these delectable apples were the best bite in town. Not to mention, we are loving this central butterfly illustration cascaded by each respective flag. What a wonderful piece of Spanish history! Printed by J. Ortega in Valencia, Spain.
