Click on the images to see more detail

This label came from the same home as 5105 (Cyder).   It is unmarked, but it seems probable that it came from the same workshop as it is the same size, almost the same weight and design.

In the Cyder label, one letter was mis-engraved; in this label the calligraphy slopes at a drunken angle to the right as if the label was placed incorrectly on the work-bench.

Date: c.1780

Dimensions: 1.5", 3.8 cm. wide

Weight: 7 grams

Price: UK customers £30, US customers $40, Euro customers €35, Australian customers $55
