Grape Crate Map

My mother in law has a mounted copy of this vintage grape crate label in her cabin in Naples, New York.
Naples (at the bottom of Canandaigua Lake) is in the heart of the Finger Lakes wine country. There is no date listed but the label is from around 1900 and according to the Antique Label Company "was lithographed during a time when lead, cobalt and other compounds were often introduced as a part of the ink used to make the images brilliant, vivid and colorful."
