This is an authentic vintage apricot label mounted on repurposed wood.

I came across this old label at an antiques shop.

Superba brand
Solid Pack
Pie Apricots
Catz American Company of California
San Francisco - California
Net Weight 6 lbs. 10 oz.
Product of U.S.A.

The colors were so vibrant and the label was in such terrific shape that I had to take it home. I had no idea what I was going to do with these labels, but it seemed like a shame to leave them behind.

I sometimes go by a place where they make wooden wine boxes. Outside the shop they keep piles of wood scraps for the taking. Last time I was there I grabbed a few pieces that were in really good shape. When I got the crate labels, I put two and two together, and this sign was born.

I had seen cheap, made-in-China signs reproducing old fruit and vegetable labels at big box retailers. But this label was the real deal, and I decided to showcase it in a very simple way.

I gave a piece of wood measuring 11 ¾ x 5 ½ x ½ inches (~30 x 13.5 x 1.3 cm) a coat of green stain, so that the grain shows underneath. I carefully glued the label on top, and put some ribbon on the back for easy hanging.

This sign will look right at home in your kitchen or dining room. It would make a terrific hostess or housewarming gift.
