This is one of a little group of vintage metal labels which you would put on the neck of a bottle - or more probably a decanter.

These look back to the Art Nouveau period for inspiration - but date from the late 1960s or early 1970s - when there was a renewed interest in Nouveau designs.

Each label is made of a shaped piece of thick copper - the front has beautiful enamel work.

This one is for Sherry - the main body colour is green - and the lettering appears on a pale blue banner - with old gold coloured lettering. The chains are original to the label.

The label measures as follows: 3 inches (7cm) wide and with a height of 1 3/4 inches (4.5 cm). Not including the copper chain.

In lovely clean vintage condition with no damages.

John Leman appears to have worked in Aboyne, Aberdeenshire, in the 1970s. He made a variety of decorative items - all decorated with jewel-like enamels.

These little labels are certainly very attractive - and funky additions of a more modernist cocktail bar.

These bottle labels are highly collectable and now quite hard to source - works by Leman are of great interest to collectors of 20th-century Scottish outsider design. These enamel wares are now about 50 years old.
