Design:
The word 'The' has been dropped from the label name; the background scenery shown on earlier labels (above left) has also been deleted. The galloping horse is racier than the 'rocking-horse' variety (above left), but the symmetrical legs still appear unnatural; a drawing from a photograph (above right) more accurately captures the animal's asymmetrical running motion. The label name lettering is unusual in that the main vertical strokes are convex instead of the usual concave, giving the letters a sausage-like appearance.

History: As previous.
