This fine antique George III sterling silver decanter label / bottle ticket has a subtly convex, plain rectangular cut cornered form.
The body is embellished with the engraved inscription 'RUM' to the centre.
The antique decanter label is suspended from two ring loops to the upper border connected by a silver belcher style chain.
This fine example of Georgian silverware has been crafted by the Newcastle maker Thomas Watson but assayed in London; this was an occasional practice with smaller items of Newcastle silver, where no town mark was struck.
