Original Antique Apple Crate (Box) Labels

The fruit box nearest in size to Oranges and Lemons is the Apple box. Apple labels also were made in thousands of designs primarily from Washington, with a fair number from California and a smattering from Oregon, British Columbia, Idaho, Colorado and other states. Apple labels are roughly 9" x 11", which makes them slightly smaller and therefore not quite as spectacular as the Citrus labels.

Type Codes:
A=California Apple, Aw=Washington, Aa=Australia, Ao=Oregon, Ac=Canada
A id=Idaho, (d)=Dehydrated, (gp)=gift pack small label usually 1/2 bushel

Label Sizes: All approximately 9" x 11"

* = Slight damage from water, mildew, or fracture
