Signature Seal Bordeaux

Signed Bordeaux Seal. "One of a Kind". French Bordeaux wine bottle, mid-olive green, high flat applied lip, with large oval seal "J. H. D. BECKER FILS - 'signature' - BORDEAUX". I bought this one back from Melbourne, Australia in May, 2005. It was 'dug' in a building site in City Rd. South Melbourne by an experienced and long time bottle collector and 'digger'. The bottle has sent the last 150+ years in the ground on the other side of the globe and now it is Paris back in its country of origin some 150 years latter. I love a story with a happy ending...
