Duckwall Oregon Pear Crate Label
This original vintage pear crate label comes from the 1940s and measures 10.25” Wide x 7.25” High. It features a very colorful Oregon duck set against a red brick wall with a light blue background. The label was designed and printed by Roesch Company of San Francisco, California. The pears were grown, packed, and shipped by Duckwall Brothers, Inc. of Hood River, Oregon.
The Duckwall brothers, John and William St. Clair, began their company as a small packing house in the middle of an orchard in Hood River, Oregon in 1919. They had great success and in 1929, John traveled to Europe to establish export markets that now total one-third of the company’s business. In 1971, the company grew dramatically when they merged with Pooley Fruit Company and became known as Duckwall-Pooley Fruit Company. They are still in business today and annually pack 1.7 million cartons of pears that are shipped all over the U.S. and to Scandinavia, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Russia, the Far East, South America, and etc. They market their pears under Duckwall, Gosling, and Mt. Hood labels.
