6022 A plain Rectangular Label for RUM

Click on the images to see more detail

Far from grandiose, this is a plain silver wine (strictly spirit) label for RUM.  It is unmarked but of quite a solid gauge and is pierced "RUM".  

There are no hallmarks, nor a maker's mark, but it tests as silver.  The piercing is sharp, but not very accurate - but that adds character.  Perhaps it's best feature is that it is very inexpensive!

Date: c.1775

Dimensions: 1.7", 4.5 cm wide
