Mint Condition Irvine's Wines Enamel Australian Sign - SOLD
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION & HISTORY
An immaculate Irvine's wine Australian enamel sign with vivid colours and almost mint patina. Hans Irvine, a Ballarat businessman, bought Joseph Best's Great Western Winery after his sudden demise in 1887. Irvine went onto creating with French champagne makers from the house of Pommery a "sparkling Australian wine" which became highly acclaimed at international wine shows. Even Dame Nellie Melba in the late 1890's took a "champagne bath at Irvine's". Seppelt's bought Irvine's Wines in 1918 and went on to become of the largest wine making companies then in Australia.
