Sandiland Drinkwater is known for his early escutcheon labels,
such appearing "to have been his principle if not entire output". (Grimwade p. 494)
Made entirely by hand, these small labels (tickets) exhibited very find craftsmanship
and are very sought after amongst collectors of early wine silver.
Prior to these early bottle tickets, wines had been identified by a string-tied parchment label.
Condition : Excellent with only some polishing loss of outer detailing surrounding the grape leaves
2.25" Wide / .8 oz.
