Perry Sultana...

Recommended Posts

Both of these labels belong to the British & Irish "golden age" of copperplate engraving, as opposed to the Cremonese, which were primarily movable type labels.

George Bickham was the acknowledged high priest of the copperplate golden age.

Conor, Thank you again for posting the older Perry label. It is a little tough to see the writing. If you had  another example it would be just too much!... I mean how many of these old Perry's do you have just laying around, LOL...:). You are  a very generous soul. I hope I have better luck with the tone on this one than I did on the viola. I'm taking my time more so than I did on that one...If not what a cool wall hanger it will be in my music room!

I'm sure Conor will post a photo of the Christ Churd Yard label when he has time...and I think he mentioned that is the one inside of Colm's sulatana. I know he's busy and I don't want to keep pestering him. I know I'm a long ways away from putting in any labels.

I can't remember if there's a date on it. But if the number on the button is 679 it should be about 1780, which means it would have had an early Anglesea Street label, but I think it may be missing.
