Sauce label for KETCHUP made in England around 1810 and remaining in very good condition. This is Old Sheffield Plate (OSP), but the silver is in very good shape with only the very slightest blush showing on a few of the beads at the top. It is 1⅜ inches wide and about ½-inch high. A nice addition for your collection of bottle labels or tickets or just fun if you like ketchup.

These three photographs were in old frames. they ae all between 6 1/2 and 7 inches wide and between 9 and 9 1/2 inches high. There is some damage around the edges (chips, etc.) and the darker one of the soldier sitting has a crease in the left side, a split at the top.. They are somewhat brittle. Most of these defects can be seen in the scans. I am not sure but I think these may be from the World War I era.
