Cameo 1

Cameo (U.S.A.) / 1922

Design: The vertical red stripes on the deep blue background (associated with wallpaper of the English Regency period, 1811 - 1820, when cameos were a popular form of art), makes the overprinted information hard to read. For that reason, the label name is isolated within a panel.

History: Formed in 1921 as a cheaply-priced label. Eventually it merged with Pathe and then Regal to form the American Record Corporation. The label was discontinued in 1931.
