9919 Two Small Bin Labels for Port & Madeira


Click on the images to see more detail

These are two unusual bin lables from a set. One bears the legend '2 MADEIRA', the other '11 PORT'.

They are unusual for their small size, but they are probably not designed to be used in a wine cooler, but in the cellar. However, they are the usual thickness (0.3", 7 mm) of full-size bin labels.

The numbers above the names is also an unusual feature.

The condition of the labels is fine at a first glance, but the Madeira label is a little discoloured around the top, and the Port label has been restored (the top had been broken away).

Date: c.1850

Dimensions: 3.6", 9 cm wide
