The label under glass (LUG) applied label is in very good condition, complete and some minor ‘crackling’ of the painted surface.
When viewing the glass label "in person", it is quite appealing and displays beautifully. Please note that the elongated, reddish mark seen on the label is a function of poor photography - it is only a reflection of another object in the room- and not a stain!
