Antique Vintage Tot Crate Label made by T.O. Tomosello Company out of Watsonville, California, 1940s

9 3/4" x 7" ~

This label with the baby looks like another popular baby I can think of. The Gerber baby was made in 1928 so just like the chicken and the egg which came first? I am not 100% sure to tell you honestly. This company last I knew was still in business today because they were smart/lucky enough to start in Watsonville which survived the expansion of man so far and is still 70% agricultural. A neat way to use his name's initials as branding.

Very slight corner wear and I am being picky please see pictures and video and judge for yourself.

Crate Labels are a reminder of a bygone era but the amazing lithography process is unparalleled even to this day in my opinion. Museums and Art Institutes have galleries dedicated to them and more and more of them and collectors are seeking these out to preserve their history. Once the limited supply for sale is gone and on display with collectors or in galleries then they will be very difficult to acquire.

Imagine this amazing vintage advertising hanging as home decor in any room of your home instead of a museum!

This is within 20 years of full antique status.
