Jonesport Fish Flakes Maine Label

SKU: ULB1088 $2.00 USD

Historic Overview

Our Jonesport Fish Flakes label is a great piece of memorabilia as a well as a nice decorator item framed for your kitchen or office. The label features an image of a cod floating above the ocean on one side, and a lighthouse on a rock outcropping with the water splashing against it and a sailing ship in the background, on the other side. Simpson-Doeller of Baltimore, Maryland printed the label for R.B. & C.G. Stevens Company of Jonesport, Maine, who was the packer. It measures 9-3/4" Wide x 4-1/8" High and since it is early offset printing, probably dates to the late 1920s.

The R.B. & C.G. Stevens Company was started in 1928 and closed down in 1973. This vintage Maine label comes from leftover warehouse stock that was stored in a dry area allowing the labels to retain their vivid colors and mint condition.

Pickle Patch Georgia Dill Pickles Label
This Georgia Pickle label is from the W.B. Roddenbery Co. in Cairo, Georgia. By the way, if you're from South Georgia that's pronounced “Kay_Row”. The label dates back to 1939 and has an image of a pretty farm girl with a basket of fresh picked cucumbers standing in the cucumber patch.  The label stressed that these pickles came from “The Pick Of The Patch” cucumbers. This vintage label went on a 1 quart jar and measures 3” High x 2” Wide in mint condition. Dr. Seaborn Anderson Roddenbery started his medicine practice in 1862 in a horse-drawn buggy. In the same year he purchased a farm and sold open kettle sugar cane syrup from his medical buggy as he made his rounds. By 1867 he had an office and a general store that sold syrup from large cypress barrels, and people would bring their own jars and fill them with his cane syrup. Within five more years he had acquired 1000 acres and started to reduce his medicine practice, since he claimed 90% of his patients didn’t pay him. In 1889 Roddenbery marketed the first pure Georgia cane syrup as "Roddenbery's Old Plantation Molasses." Around 1920 the business became known as the W.B. Roddenbery Company. It was 1934 when the company expanded their product line to include peanut butter and in 1936 they added pickles. They continued expanding their products adding boiled peanuts, watermelons, and even cigars under a variety of labels. By 1986, the company was producing 45 kinds of pickles, 12 types of syrups, 4 varieties of peanut butter, and millions of boiled peanuts. In 1993 Dallas-based Dean Foods purchased the W. R. Roddenbery Company and about ten years later they closed the Cairo facilities.   WE GUARANTEE OUR LABELS TO BE AUTHENTIC AND AS DESCRIBED!
