Large Can't Bust 'Em Overalls Paper Label


I'm not quite sure how the Eloesser-Heynemann Company, makers of Can't Bust 'Em Overalls, originally used these labels. Because of the size, perhaps they were used on boxes or maybe just for in-store display. There's no date or manufacturing information present, but I'd date the piece being from the 1920s or 1930s.

    1. I was thinking the same thing, but the size is pretty big. The width is approximately 5 1/8 and the height is 6 3/4.
