Beautiful Set 4 Boac Concorde Sterling Silver Liquor Bottle Labels Date Marked
The first in use was the Comet, but after four models crashed (the last two of which were BOACs), the Comet was grounded in April 1954. An Act of Parliament merged British European Airways with BOAC in the mid-1970's, if this had not occurred, BOAC would have been one of the very first to fly the Concorde. The four sterling silver tags read: "SHERRY", "VODKA", "BOURBON", or "RYE" and just below: "CONCORDE".
The reverse of each is date-marked 1986 and shows: "B·A", an anchor, a lion, and an "M" and is suspended from a nice, dainty chain link. SIZE: Approximately 2" x 1-1/4" (tag only), 4-1/2" x 1-1/4" with chain. ATTACHMENT: Loop with suspension link chain. MARKINGS: "B·A", "M", anchor, lion. ITEM NOTES: This is from an airlines collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. CONDITION: 8+ (Excellent): The liquor tags show mild to moderate wear and tarnish, overall excellent condition. GUARANTEE: As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
