Shamrock (Ireland) / c. 1929

back next

Design: The very attractive design features an outsized shamrock front and centre on a cream background, with shadowed lettering for the label name in gold following the outer curve. Legend has it that the three-leafed plant was used by St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, as a way of explaining the Christian doctrine of the Trinity (i.e. the tri-une nature of God) to pagan listeners in his evangelization efforts.
