Design: The attractive curving banner with its shaded swallowtail endings is the main feature, with the label name being hand-lettered in a hybrid roman/script style. The difficulty of printing by letterpress in gold ink over a solid colour is evident here, the non-absorptive surface giving a 'greasy' finish to the type, some of it being almost illegible.
History: Unknown (have info? Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org). Label scan courtesy of collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
