Footnotes

  • The Battersea factory at York House was founded in 1753 by the partnership of Janssen, Delamain and Brooks, aiming to make use of a process to transfer engraved designs onto enamel. Wine labels were amongst the range of luxury goods produced before the closure of the factory in 1755 or 1756. Amongst the lots at Jannsen's bankruptcy sale in 1756 were 'Bottle tickets with Chains for all sorts of Liquor, and of different subjects...'. There appears to be seventeen different designs and around forty different recorded titles. The design on the present lot is also found titled 'ALE' and 'HOCK'. See John Salter, Wine Labels, p 297 and fig 998. An example with 'HOCK' was sold in these rooms on 8 June 2005, lot 75.
