Antique Enamel Decanter or Wine Labels, Set of Four Hand-Painted Black & White - image 1 of 5

A set of four 19th C enamel decanter or wine bottle labels. The white decanter tags have black trim and lettering for;
Chartreuse, Cognac, Curacao, and Kirsch. The labels are slightly concave in form so they will conform to the curve of decanters.
Perfect addition to a bar/cocktail collection.

Bottle tickets or labels were used in the early 18th to help identify the contents of decanters. Decanters had become a main stay in wealthy homes and a need arose to help identify the wine/liquor in the decanter. The tickets/labels were created out of sterling silver, enamel, bone, brass, and many other natural materials. They are considered a collector’s item and are even more desirable when a matching set is available. The English silversmith Sandylands Drinkwater, who produced silver labels between 1735 and 1750 was one of the first to produce wine labels. His wine labels are highly desirable today.

Acquired in France, possibly French or English C 1850.

Measurements; 1 3/8" wide and 3/4" long, the suspensory chains add 2" in length

Condition Report; Very good, acceptable condition in accordance with age and use. Wear to the edges and small amount to the black enamel.
