Beltona de Luxe (U.K.) / c. 1926

Design: The ornamentation has been simplified from the earlier design (right) and a scroll added to contain the 'de luxe' notation. The red and gold colour combination does not help the legibility of the label name, which now runs in an arc around the top.

History: Founded in 1922, Beltona was taken over in 1927 by Edison Bell. Label scan courtesy of collector and musicologist Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K., an expert on Scottish music history, whose comprehensive book, A Scottish Vernacular Discography 1888-1960 is available at
