Bottle and Jar labels

Bottle and Jar labels

Many bottle collectors seek out the labels that would originally have been affixed to the various bottles and jars that they collect Sometimes it is possible to find a bottle with its original label. Occasionally labels themselves are found, often in old mineral water works or breweries. Some years ago, an old shop on the Orkney Islands off the coast of Scotland produced some beautiful coloured old labels. There were many thousands of them originally but now very few remain. The jam labels , like those illustrated here were quite stunning, printed in many colours, and advertising a variety of old jams no longer available. The mineral water labels were interesting in themselves, again advertising drinks that would have been popular at the turn of the century. We have a few of these labels for sale. The jam labels are just $5 each or $10 for 3 -(we will send what varieties we can, please do not order any specific jams !) The mineral water labels are just $5 for 10 different labels.
