4030 A Pair of Wine Labels for Port & Sherry
This is a good, straightforward pair of wine labels for Sherry and Port. They were made in 1811 by the partnership of Thomas Phipps, Edward Robinson and James Phipps. James joined his father in the well established business early in the 19th century. The partnership are well recognised as makers of good quality small wares - wine labels, nutmeg graters, snuff boxes and so forth. They also made unusual objects quite outside the oeuvre of most makers.
Being for Sherry and Port, these are very practical labels. The marks are very clearly struck, although neither carries the London Town mark (the leopard's head).
