Antique Genuine-Original Olney & Floyd Butterfly Brand Pumpkin Can Label- Mint
1 in stock
- Made in USA
- Antique: 1890's
- Details: One of the oldest labels you will find. These go back to the late 1800's and are considered some of the most beautiful labels of any type ever made. The label has no weight marking which was required by law around 1906, and is from the 1890's. Truly one of a kind quality, Guaranteed Genuine/Original. It has a very detailed picture of a large butterfly on one side with bright, beautiful reds yellows and blues. The other side depicts a very large pumpkin in the typical pumpkin orange color on a black background. It has a wonderful glossy finish which I tried to show in the pictures. The colors are bright with fantastic graphics and the attention to detail is amazing considering there were no computer graphics back then. It would take a craftsman 3 to 4 months to make the plates to produce a label like this. It wasn't until 1903 that the first lithographic offset press for paper was produced, slowly doing away with stone lithographs. This is an incredibly beautiful stone lithograph. It's rare to run into can labels of this kind of quality, definitely suitable for framing, and recommended to maintain this condition. I've seen others buy 4 labels with the same theme (cows, vegetables, etc) and frame them together, looks very nice. Collecting labels has become a very popular hobby, mainly because of the beautiful and unique images/artwork that can be found. If this is your hobby, we have lots more labels available, please feel free to browse.
