Thank you for supporting the Board. s: [ 1 ] 2 3 Go Down. Author Topic: Mdina paper labels Read times. Apologies if this topic has been discussed before, it's just that recently I've noticed a subtle difference in the de of Mdina paper labels. Don't wish to send everyone to sleep by discussing this but Dating mdina glass are two main types of paper label which both have the same dimensions The earlier of the two labels is the second one seen below and to the left in the photo of the two labels together. The earlier label is based on Michael Harris's original de seen on 18 of Mark Poems about being silly book.

I agree completely, Christine. Things were very random and hotch-potch, they just used what was to hand. Mdina was written on the base, sometimes. Items which Horney wives Lafayette Louisiana have been seconds or which hadn't been fully finished off, were sold anyway if the shop shelves were getting empty.
A label might be stuck on, but it also might not have been. It was very much Dating and romance matter of desperately trying to keep the shelves in the shop stocked.
They are valid points you are making Christine. I doubt that there would be different printers involvedthe paper labels are the same size so would have come from the same supplier. You can see variations in where the logo is set within the Rent flat winchester label on both des.
