back next

Design: A semicircular overarching heading with a horizontal label name, much like the contemporary Disco Odeon label design. Blood-red background colouring with a gold-embossed, calligraphic label name and a bull primed for a fight charging into the arena provides rich visual imagery, designed to appeal to Spanish buyers. Printed by litho but imprinted by letterpress, using a mixture of font styles.

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Ricardo Calvo (1875-1966) was a popular Spanish stage and film actor.
