Description: A commemorative silver wine label, engraved WHISKY, made to celebrate the silver jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. The label has the Royal crown, with dates 1952-1977 above, and EIIR (Elizabeth 2nd Regina (Queen)) below. A scroll engraved "WHISKY" is below, above the 5 hallmarks which are an attractive part of the design. The hallmarks include the Silver Jubilee mark of the Queen only used in 1977. Da-Mar Silverware operated between 1975 and 1977, it was named after Chairman David Shaw and Managing Director Martin Collins. They also hallmarked silver in Edinburgh. The label is well made, it hangs well on a decanter or whisky bottle. This design is not pictured in the wine label "bible", "Wine Labels 1730-2003", published by the Wine Label Circle (membership of which we highly recommend). Da-Mar Silverware is also not listed as a known maker of wine labels (pg 400), so this maker needs to be added to the list. We assume these labels were made in small quantities.
