This label for a 25 pound crate of mixed fruit features a romantic view of a valley full of orchards. "Heart's Delight" was a generic label used by the Richmond-Chase Company in San Jose, California. The different kinds of fruits packed by Richmond-Chase would be printed in the white area of the label. Founded in 1919, by Elmer E. Chase and Edmund N. Richmond the Richmond-Chase Company operated as an independent cannery until 1958. The Richmond-Chase Company operated a 27-acre plant in San Jose and 21 acre plant in Stockton. Hundreds were employed at the peak of each season. In 1958 Richmond-Chase became a division of the California Canners and Growers, which closed in 1982.
