Ceramic Claret bin label with glazed front. English early19th century.

Condition: Very good. 

Note: Claret is a British term used, unofficially, in reference to red Bordeaux wine.

The wine from Bordeaux was a dark rose spiced drink in the Middle Ages. That's why it was called "claret", from the French clairet. It changed to the present dry dark red in the 18th century.
