HY-TONE Washington Apple Crate Label
This vintage crate label features the HY-TONE APPLES logo in red and yellow Deco 3-D script and dates back to the 1940s. The label measures 10" Wide x 8.75" High and was lithographed by Ridgway Litho Company of Seatle, Washington. In addition to the logo, this crate label has a beautiful Peacock on a blue ring in the upper left corner. The fruit was distributed by Oneonta Trading Corporation of Wenatchee, Washington.
In 1934, excited by the burgeoning worldwide demand for fresh produce, Paul Thomas and his family formed Oneonta Trading Corporation in Wenatchee, Washington and became the first exporter of Washington apples. This packing company derives its name from the indigenous language of the Northeast American Indians. The Iroquois word, "Onaanta," has but two (of many) translations, which perfectly describes the panorama of central Washington. It means "mountain," or "where the rocks crop out."
