Description

A colorful trademark label for canned "deep sea" lobster, with an image of a lobster. The label contains a reference to apparently winning a gold medal in Paris in 1878.

This trademark label was submitted to the Maine Secretary of State in 1891 in order to obtain legal protection for the design.
