    About this item

    Ceramic bin label title Rum with rounded shoulders English Mid 19th century.

    Condition Very good. 

    Further information: Bin labels are the lowly but elder relations of decanter labels and served a different purpose. Their origins go back to the mid 17th century when the binning or storage of wines first became important. They then served a utilitarian purpose identifying unmarked bottles in lying in the depths of gentlemen's or wine merchants cellars. They were either directly nailed to a shelf on which were stored the bottles or barrels or directly to the barrel itself.

    Bin labels are in the main made from pottery including Delftware and creamware, or broadly speaking, earthenware. They are therefore highly susceptible to damage and therefore there are far fewer bin labels than decanter labels in existence.
