Original Antique Pear Crate (Box) Labels

After Citrus and Apples, the Pear label is the choice for framing and displaying. In fact because of local pride, pear growing regions like the Sacramento River and the Rogue Valley in Oregon are far more interested in collecting examples of pears than either apples or citrus. Pear Labels measure about 8" x11", and most pears are grown in California, Oregon and Washington. Again, there is a wide variety of designs to choose from.

Type Codes:
P=California Pear, Pw=Washington, Pa=Australia, Po=Oregon, BA=Blue Anchor logo
Label Sizes: All approximately 8" x 11"

* = Slight damage from water, mildew, or fracture
