Design: The design allows for a royalty stamp to be placed prominently beneath the label name. The curlicue-ended outer line is a remnant of Victoriana.

History: Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K., who notes that the Chappell company, London-based music publishers founded in 1810 (publishers of the Gilbert & Sullivan operettas), used Grammavox masters for releases on their own label. The Warner/Chappell company is still active.
