Hans Underfen, Riøbenhavn

Seeking information about a wine merchant or importer, about which I know only “Hans Underfen, Riøbenhavn” (the location perhaps being Copenhagen).

Please, if you have bottles or knowledge, do share. (Link to picture at full resolution.)

Hi Julian,

I saw your post on Hans 'Underfen'.

The typeface is Fraktur:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fraktur?wprov=sfla1

If you transcribe it into a modern typeface it reads 'Hans Andersen, Kiobenhaun'

I hope this transcription helps with your search.

As a Dane, I can confirm that it says ‘Hans Andersen, Copenhagen’. It is just written in old language/writing.
