Acid-Etched and Engraved Labels

A few glasses did actually have their label applied by etching with acid.  One can tell a true etched glass from the more common applied label by running a finger nail gently over the label.  Etching a glass creates a depression.  It's also easy to tell the two apart with a magnifier.  Labels were also applied to some glasses by cutting or grinding.  Again, these are easy to identify with a finger nail.
