Old Sherry Labels
My friend Jose Luis Jimenez sent me these lovely pictures which show how art and Flamenco artists served as models for late XIX and early XX century Sherry labels. It is interesting how closely Romate's Dulce de Gloria label resembles the photo of Pepa Ruiz, a gypsy dancer. Romate still use such labels for Manzanilla Viva La Pepa and Fino Perdido. Fino Buleria was a brand from Palomino y Vergara, but the name (if not the soleras) now belongs to Dios Baco.
