A pottery bin label for "Bucellas"
The form of this bin label is the standard 'squared coathanger' shape, with a projecting lug at the apex with a hole for suspension. The lettering is black against a cream background.
Bucellas (now spelt with a single 'L') was a very popular wine in the 18th and 19th centuries, although little is seen in the UK today. Today it tends to be a dry white wine, but in the past it was probably sweeter. The town of Bucelas is a little north of Lisbon.
