  • Details:  Truly one of a kind quality, Bess Milk Can Label, Guaranteed Genuine / Original, not a reproduction.  One of the oldest milk labels you'll ever see, and very scarce.  The colors are few, as color printing was limited to 2-3 colors at the time, and was quite expensive.  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 is a stone lithograph image of a Guernsey cow's face.  It is marked "United Milk Products Corporation".  Interesting fact about this label, they were found in a box under the stairs of an old cannery when it was being demolished. Several types were found, but there weren't very many of these.  It's rare to run into can labels this old with this kind of quality and condition, suitable for framing, and recommended to maintain this condition.  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.
