Cucumber - Stock label #910, Art Deco, Pop Art cucumber. Fruit and Vegetable labels, called "Stock Labels" were lithographed by all the large West Coast label lithographers. These intriguing images left a space, often the sky, open for the local printer to over-print the name and produce information of area growers. For a small orchard or farm this was a much less expensive way to label their wooden crates than to use a custom designed image. Stock labels were also often used as a temporary measure by the large out-fits whenever their expensive custom labels were late in arriving. The local printer always had a stock of "stock" labels on hand and could deliver a serviceable label within hours. Many of these are beautiful works of Art in their own right. Custom framed; aprox. 11 x 4 inches; hmmm, seems kinda small.... This fine old vegetable print produce label was lithographed during a time when lead, cobalt and other compounds were often introduced as a part of the ink used to make the images brilliant, vivid and colorful.
