A Short History Of Decanter Labels And Tags

Decanter labels, also called bottle tickets have a long history of adorning decanters of all kinds with their beautiful designs, allowing at the same time to easily identify the contents of the decanter.

The earliest labels have been found from the 18th Century, between the years 1730-1770. These early name tags had a rococo influence. Some designs are plain, while others are quite ornate and elaborate.

After the 1770s we have the neo-classical label designs, which are even today considered the most elegant and sleek labels created for decanters.

The regency period (after the 1880s) gave way to a rather heavy (and heavily) ornate pieces.

The 1830s have brought to life Victorian style labels, however this is the period which has seen a strong decline in handcrafted decanter labels, due to the increase of paper labels glued to wine bottles in factories. This time has also seen the decline in using decanters for serving alcohol for guests as well.

These days decanter labels are mostly factory manufactured and the materials range from silver to brass, nickel, pewter and many others. The labels are much more affordable, however some handcrafted ones are still making silversmith artists a small fortune - and they make great gifts too.

Silver Decanter Labels

Silver decanter labels are very popular gifts to give to anyone who is a wine lover.

If you are thinking of giving your friend a wine decanter, consider looking through some silver decanter labels to give. Many companies specialize in reproducing rare and unusual antique designs that imitate what was fashionable centuries ago.

Regardless of whether serving an old wine or a young wine, it should be served from a beautiful decanter that will make the wine proud. However don't think that a decanter label is only useful for wine. They are many beautiful liquor decanter labels as well, which can be given as gift just the same.

Most of the silver decanter labels are actually made of sterling silver with a rich 24-carat gold plating. Some are blank yet others have various engravings on them. It all depends on your preferences when shopping.

If you have a crystal decanter, it truly deserves having a silver decanter label to go with it. The crystal decanter just has an air of aristocracy that other materials can not give, and sterling silver being an aristocratic fine metal, the two match together very well.

As a matter of fact most of the people who buy crystal decanters add to their order also a silver decanter label automatically.

Pewter Decanter Labels

Pewter decanter labels are also very common label types that adorn the necks of fine crystal decanters.

Based on geek.com, pewter is:

an alloyed metal made primarily from tin, with a small component of lead, copper, bismuth, or antimony. It has been traditionally used to make tableware and decorative items. The metal is highly ductile, meaning that it can easily be worked, embossed, or carved. The malleable nature of pewter has been harnessed for thousands of years, at least since Roman times, and the metal was at one point highly prized.

Usually each label hangs on a chain around the neck of a bottle or your own red wine decanter. Of course, a full variety of spirit labels can be chosen from besides red wine, and there is a blank label to identify any other type of wine or liquor when there is no inscription for a more exotic drink type.

You can find the decanter tags either readily available, or you can have them custom made and custom engraved.

      No, I had never heard of them. They are however clearly very practical for those occasions when you don't want to serve beverages in their original containers or bottles.

      Stylish too.
