Antique Vintage McCurdy Crate Label made by Sweetbrier Orchards out of San Jose, California 1950s

10 1/2 x 7 1/2" ~ I only have a few of these.

This is a neat look at the moon overlooking the Lick Observatory on Mt Hamilton. Great decor for any astronomy fan!

Lick Observatory was the world's first permanently occupied mountain-top observatory that was constructed from 1876 to 1887 as the last wishes of James Lick (1796 – 1876) who gave $700,000 (approximately $35 million in 2022 dollars) James Lick was buried under the future site of the telescope.

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 30 years of full antique status.
The Antique Vintage McCurdy Crate Label, San Jose, CA 1950s Lick Observatory Astronomy is far and away, one of our most popular items. People can't seem to get enough of it.
