Crown Melon: Spanish Melon Lithograph
This product is unavailable
Towards the end of the 19th century the fruit trade was booming. As a means to stand out from the crowd, talented artists were hired in the early 1900s to create eye catching and colourful advertorials which were attached to the fruit's wooden shipping crates.
These decorative illustrations would pay tribute to the fruit's Spanish origin and brand ethos. The aim was to be bold and bright, but also romantic and nostalgic. An extremely inspiring era for commercial food advertising and a special snapshot of history to hang on your wall.
These lithographs are vintage originals in good condition, with small signs of wear in keeping with their age. They are hand framed in linen accent mounts and glazed with protective Artglass. Each frame (bar one) is the same size on the wall, so prints could easily be hung as pairs or wider sets.
