A very unusual George III Wine Label made in Dublin circa 1780 by John Teare.

The design of this very fine Heraldic Wine Label is subtly different to one which would be found in London and displays a corded edge, with reeded oval above. This piece is very finely engraved for CHAMPAGNE, with excellent niello filled lettering and stylised foliate motifs in each corner. The most interesting characteristic is that the title has been engraved upside down which is rarely seen on labels, but which is very desirable to collectors. This piece is very well marked on the reverse with JT, twice, for John Teare of Dublin.
