Design: The decorative border gives a folk-art look to the label, which is accentuated by the roughly-drawn lettering for the label name and the Victorian-looking logo over the spindle hole. Areas are defined by thick lines (including the royalty stamp and serial number boxes, which occupy overly prominent positions).

History: Music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K., who supplied this image, notes: "[This label was] first recorded in Britain, then in Belgium, using masters from Aco (U.K.), Vocalion (both U.K. and U.S.A.) and Gennett (U.S.A.)."
