General Note: No lettering on label.
General Note: Higher-priced labels used 10 or more colors plus bronze or 24K gold leaf. Bronze was usually burnished or buffed to a metallic luster. As if that was not enough, in the mid-1890s, lithographers began using 38-ton presses and precision-machined dies to emboss many of their labels. The embossing process highlighted the raised portions of the label with 24 K gold leaf or bronze. Embossing gave the labels their life-like dimensionality; gold coins found on most labels now looked like real gold pieces.
