Earlier before using labels usual used device to mark single wine lots in a cellar. A common form were semicircular signs in the form of a broad hanger with up to 15 centimeters in length, which had an eyelet for hanging at the apex. But there were other forms. The basement signs were used for the labeling of the individual compartments (compartment in a shelf), in which at that time still without label provided bottles camped. They were mostly made of ceramics (stoneware), cheaper versions made of wood or slate.
