Retro Decor: Vintage Fruit and Vegetable Crate Label Art

Vintage Fruit or Vegetable Crate or Can Label Art as Kitchen Decor

Fruit and Vegetable Crate Label Art

Fruit and Vegetable Crate Label Art

Beautiful, funny and sometimes racy, fruit and vegetable crate art was designed to catch the eye of consumers on cans and labels for fruit and vegetable produce crates fresh from the fields.

Early in the 1900’s growers and merchants used beautiful artwork to entice people to buy with images of fruits and vegetables with farm animals, beautiful  landscapes and mermaids.  Artists created sun drenched landscapes and romantic scenes to make their produce stand out.  The artwork on these vintage crate labels can now be appreciated for their unique beauty and have become popular retro kitchen decor.
