California Antique Orange Crate Labels and Frames


California orange crate labels show the beauty, hope, and promise of California in a less-crowded and more pastorial time. Printed between 1880 and the 1950's, by Sunkist and other agricultural companies, the California citrus label has become both a collector's item and a beautiful decorative feature to any home.

LabelFrames.corangem provides labels that are chosen on the basis of their beauty and Southern California origin. All the labels are guaranteed to be original lithographs. Copies and reproductions are never sold by LabelFrames.corangem.

For more information regarding the history of the California citrus industry and valuable historical information about crate labels, click Links above.

LabelFrames.corangem provides framed labels at a low cost and reasonable price. Blank frames for your collection or home display are also available. Below is a description of the frames.

The Frames (back to top)

For years I have seen orange crate labels displayed in high priced wooden frames. I have always thought these frames detracted from the original beauty of an attractive California orange crate label. I also have never understood why people would spend $75.00 or more dollars to have a $12 or $15 dollar orange crate label framed. Framing is expensive. LabelFrames.corangem solves this problem by providing a beautiful low cost frame that shows the label -- and not the frame!

Each frame has been designed to fit most orange crate labels. These labels were originally sized between 9-10 by 10-11 inches. Our frames will display these labels beautifully. Sure, there are some larger crate labels, but you will not find them on LabelFrames.corangem.

Each frame and label is shipped to you in such a way that all you will need is a single nail and less than one minute to add a beautiful California orange crate label to your home decor.

The frames consist of four components: the plexi-glass frame, an acid-free mat backing, a styrofoam backing, and of course, the label of your choice. If you have your own labels, you can purchase frames without labels, thereby saving the high cost of having your labels put in wooden frames. Frames, without labels, are $14.00 each. To purchase blank frames, simply go to the bottom of this page.

Why plexi-glass? For years museums across the country have been using Plexi-glass to protect their works. Plexi-glass is non-glare and protects lithographs from harmful UV light. In addition, plexi-glass eliminates the risk of shattered glass and is much lighter than glass making it easier and safer to handle and hang. In fact, all you will need to hang this frame is a single nail.

Below are some examples of our framed labels displayed in some local homes.
