5199 A Delftware Bin Label for LISBON


Click on the images to see more detail

Delftware, or tin-glazed earthenware bin labels are very much less often seen than pottery ones - and they are earlier.  Typically this label has a blueish hue to the background and the lettering is in a very deep shade of magenta.

Lisbon is a wine name not often seen, but in the 18th century it was distinguished from Bucellas, a nearby wine region that is still recognised today - while Lisbon is not.

The label is in good unrestored condition with only a couple of very minor chips which cannot be seen from the front.  The glaze is in good 'bright' condition.

Date: c.1760-80

Dimensions: 5.4", 13.7 cm. wide

Sold (we would welcome news of similar items for sale)
