Design: In the label name, visual impact and tightness is achieved by the overlapping of the brush-scripted capitals, the loose arrangement being contrasted and its assymmetry balanced by a horizontal block containing the rest of the label name. The outer border is also very interesting in the contrast between the triple-line border in the upper segment and the stylized organic laurel-leaf border in the lower segment, a traditional image being reinterpreted in a clean modern style.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany.
