This lovely label is on the back of an old painting I purchased recently. I love the Arts and Crafts style. There is so much going on in such a small label. Wearing a peasant blouse and a lavish headband the artist is holding her brushes and palette and leaning on the easel. Behind stars in a dark sky are viewed through the arched window that is surrounded by decorative timberwork. The lettering appears hand drawn as you can see variation in repeated letters. Note too the phone number, three digits!
