#ZLCA043 - Roseco Evaporated Milk Label
Vintage 9 3/4" wide Roseco Brand 14 1/2 ounce Evaporated Milk label. This is perhaps the most beautiful dairy label you will ever see. Stone litho image. Very deep and vibrant colors. Cow with milking stool and bucket pictured. Also a gigantic rose image. These labels have a printer's code on them that dates them to 1933. They are an amazing find. They came from a brewery in Minnesota! During prohibition, the brewery turned to canning milk since they couldn't make beer any more. It was a large operation and they canned milk for companies all over the country. The companies would send them the labels and they would can the milk and send it back with the companies label on it. Incredibly, as soon as prohibition was over, they returned immediately to brewing beer and a ton of canning labels were left sitting in the basement all those years. We were able to procure the entire lot of the very best labels, and they are priced very reasonably. You'll be hard pressed to find any nicer dairy related labels anywhere at any price.

#ZLCA118 - El Veretta 5¢ Cigar Can Label
Vintage large 17" wide El Veretta 5¢ cigar can label. These are unusual because they are dated 1943 which was during the war years and metal was scarce. But, this is a standard size label that would have gone on a cigar can. They are old stock from the Mirex Cigar Co. in Peoria, IL. They are heavily gilded and embossed which is more like labels from an earlier era. And..... best of all, they say "El Veretta Corona Royal Havana Blend Cigars 5¢ each or two for 25¢". Wasn't a very good deal. I have a feeling these were never used because the price printing was wrong. They are fun though and great for framing with a double image. The image shown in the picture is the right half of the label. The left is identical. They picture a bull and Matador.
