Vintage fruit crate labels are beautiful

I think the designs and prints from the early 20th century are just wonderful.  Here are some great vintage fruit crate labels (yes, they bothered to make art for the lowly produce crate). Most of the labels are produced in Spain, home of the Valencia orange.  Though I consider most of them beautiful works of pop art, some are a bit strange…
