1940 Mermaid Brand Sardine Label
This much desired sardine label dates to the late 1930s to early 1940s. It features a beautiful (?) mermaid on top of a scalloped sign with the Maine coast in the background. The sardines are smoked and in salad oil expressed from soy beans. This vintage label measures 4” High x 2.75” Wide and is really a bright beautiful label.
This sardine label comes from the Sunset Packing Company of West Pembroke, Maine. The Sunset Packing Company started operations in 1900 and was the largest sardine factory in West Pembroke. It also manufactured oils and mustards used to flavor the sardines. The Sunset Packing Co. had to close its doors in 1962 due to competition from Norway. The two versions of this label would look great framed together.
