Item Description

The best of Georgian style and design is characterised by simple, elegant lines which came as a breath of fresh air after the complexity and intricacy of the Rococo which preceded it. This wine label is a perfect example of how the lack of scrolls and curlycues makes for objects of timeless appeal. You could place this label around the neck of the most severe contemporary Scandinavian glass decanter and it would look wonderful. Likewise, you could use it with a more fussy cut or etched glass carafe and it would look equally appropriate. Hence why this kind of Georgian taste remains universally popular: it never goes out of fashion. This is an unusual design for a bottle ticket, as it makes use of a rigid ring and a hinge instead of a simple chain. As the Georgians began to decant liquid refreshment into elegant vessels which were in turn used to serve, suddenly there was a need to identify the contents of these lovely bottles. A whole new world of bottle accoutrements came into being. If you are looking for a gift for someone who loves wine, look no further. Dimensions: 5cm x 2.25cm (2x1 inches)
