For sale online is a charming vintage crate label from the 1960s, featuring the iconic "Oh Yes We Grow The Best Pears" design. This label was produced by DiGiorgio Fruit Corp. in Maryville, California. Measuring 11 x 7 1/2 inches, it is a unique piece of agricultural history.

What makes this label even more intriguing is the evident mistake made during its creation. It seems that a part of the DiGiorgio name was accidentally blocked on the litho plate used for printing. Rather than discarding the plate and creating a new one—an expensive process—a clever solution was found. The period after the obscured portion of the name was clearly visible, so the printer simply added the new address underneath.

This innovative alteration is not commonly seen on vintage crate labels, making this piece even more special and noteworthy. Capturing the essence of traditional fruit farming in California during the 1960s, this label exemplifies both the creativity and practicality of the era.

Whether you are a collector of vintage memorabilia or a lover of fruit crate art, this label is sure to captivate your attention. With its nostalgic charm and interesting backstory, it would make a delightful addition to any collection or home decor. Don't miss out on the opportunity to own such a fascinating piece of history.
