LITERATURE:
Mabille said later that Magritte signed three labels for him, all printed in red and black on white paper, of which two were used to create versions of this object. " (in d. sylvester, ed., Rene´ Magritte, Catalogue raisonne´: Oil Paintings, Objects and Bronzes 1949-1967, New York, 1993, vol. iii, p. 458, no. 1086).

Additional information:
Patinated bronze sculpture of René Magritte, casted in France using the lost-wax method, after the object produced by René Magritte in 1966 (bowler hat and label).

In a letter of 21 May 1966, Magritte gave Marcel Mabille instructions for making this object. The oil painting of the image was already completed, or nearly so. He wrote:
"My dear Mabille,
In order to add to your collection of objects dreamt by me, I would suggest the following. It consists of a 'bowler hat' onto which a label is glued. If you want this object, here is the 'modus operandi'
- you buy a black bowler hat
- you get a label printed like those on old pharmacy jars to be stuck on the hat: on gold paper in black 'blocks' letters with a black border.
The object will be called 'the horrendous stopper'
