Design: A beautiful and well-arranged label showing a fresco-style illustration, in the classical style, with a winged angelic being holding a lyre in one hand and a record in the other, accompanied by cherubs playing musical instruments (compare with the earlier Fonotipia label). The lettering running around the upper curve shows double lines for the horizontal strokes.

The word 'Mondial' carries the connotation of 'worldwide.'

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
