Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

Fruit Labels


The packet of gummed fruit labels is held together by a single staple. The front cover is beige with a black spine. Two black lines frame the title area, with a decorative fruit design on each side of the title text, Fruit Labels. Other front cover text reads Use Only Best Fruits, Use Only Best Sugar, That's Crystal Domino Granulated Sugar, Made By The American Sugar Refining Co. The back of the packet of labels is blank. The labels on the inside include individual strips for fruits like strawberries, pears, blackberries and grapes. Not all strips can be easily read since at some point moisture has caused many strips to stick together.
