BEAUTIFUL SET OF THREE MATCHING SOLID SILVER DECANTER LABELS FOR BRANDY, WHISKY AND PORT HALLMARKED SHEFFIELD 1993 AND 1994

A lovely set of three matching solid silver decanter labels for Brandy, Whisky and Port. They all have the same attractively crafted border with the hallmarks underneath the name of the spirit on the cartouche and a chain attached.

All three labels were made by Francis Howard Ltd of Trafalgar Street, Sheffield. The firm of Francis Howard was founded in 1870 and is still run by a member of the Howard family, Andrew, from the same premises today.

Each label carries the clear hallmarks of solid English silver from the Sheffield Assay Office. These are: the letters FH in a circle for Francis Howard; the rose mark to show that the silver was assayed in Sheffield after 1975; the lion passant denoting solid English silver; the letter “T” in a square for the year 1993 on the Brandy and Whisky and the letter “U” for the year 1994 on the Port.

Previous to 1975, the Assay mark for Sheffield was the Crown. However, the mark was changed to the rose because of possible confusion with the Crown mark used after 1798 as the hallmark for 18ct gold.

The measurements of all three labels are 1.75 inches (4cm) in height and 2.5 inches (6.5cm) in width. They have a combined weight of 40g.

All the labels are in very good condition. The hallmarks are slightly less crisp on the Port label. There are the usual extremely fine, minor scratches that are commensurate with age and are common to silver as it is a soft metal. On the Brandy there is a scratch across the word, less than an inch long, that will need to be polished out. There is a similar smaller scratch on the Whisky, but above the word. And they will all come up sparkling with a good clean! Please see photos for details.

A lovely, very stylish set of decanter labels that would make an ideal gift – maybe for a 20th anniversary or birthday. We have listed all three as a set, rather than individually, to give you the chance to get a complete set with one offer!

HAPPY offerDING!
