Guinness Label for Irish busses Only one left in World - £525 (Phx. AZ)

123456

condition: new
make/manufacturer: Print & Display

The label is 22 3/4 in long X 9 in tall and as you can see, it was made to advertise GUINNESS beer on Irish bus windows. I uncovered 1/2 of label from two views to show what the whole label looks like. It was made in late 80's by Ronan Conways 'Print and Display' Company in Dublin Ireland. The label is self-adhesive and was made as a test label. It is yellow with a thin orange line around the outside and the letters are black. "Print and Display' Company designed, and printed 5 of these test lables for Guinness's approval. After much consideration, Guinness rejected the label and instructed that all 5 be distroyed at once. 4 were distroyed but this one somehow escaped distruction. I spent 2 years researching, tracking and checking the authentisity of this label. Avery Dennison Roll Materials of U.K. (Graphics Division) supplied the materials to 'Print and Display'. A couple years later (1990) I tracked it down, and as I collect labels, aquired it: only after I had verified its authentisity with the 'Print and Display' Company of Dublin Ireland. Guinness has been very tight lipped about this and thier Archive Department will only admit that the label bears thier name but will not deny that they contracted with 'Print and Display' for the 5 test labels. Note the HARP. It is the 'Guinness' harp.. not the Irish harp.

If you want to be the one person in the world to own this label, then here's your chance. This is real.. No fakes, con's or flim-flam. The label is guaranteed to be 100% real. SERIOUS buyers only. email me with your information. Price reduced to 525 euro
