This is a genuine ANTIQUE American lithographic fruit label CIRCA 1950

Produced by the Stanley Levinson Company of Los Angeles California USA

Features a Goose-stepping male chicken or rooster wearing a tophat and carrying a walking stick ........all ready for the Big Gay Out..... or the Aussie HERO parade ?? :-)

This "GAY COCK" brand could well be of great interest to those spending the "pink dollar"

......So long as they are not offended by it being described as a FRUIT label ?? :-)

MEASURES 27.9 cm by 11.2 cm

UN-USED label guaranteed at least 50 years old "as-new" condition and **immensely suitable** for framing

It is WORTH NOTING that due to the AGE of this ("Brand-new" condition) fine vintage label it was PRINTED Via a 19th & early 20th Century printing technique known as 'Stone Litho' which is a continuous tone process (As opposed to a 1/2 tone or "DOT" system)

What that MEANS ? Is that under great magnification ? absolutely NO "dots" are visible. That is because ink was poured on to a carved stone printing tablet, with each colour done one at a time

ALL modern printing types DO produce the half tone "dot structure"

There is no way to reproduce (fake) this high luster vintage print finish, which was a very expensive process, and one NOT used since the 1950's Please click here to ask a question
