Diva (U.S.A.) / 1928

Design: The stylized (and pretty darn ugly) mask might either represent a female opera singer with a big mouth (often referred to as a 'diva'), or someone blowing a horn. A panel containing the label name is crudely plastered right across its 'mouth.'

History: A Columbia subsidiary, Diva was sold through the W.T. Grant store chain from 1925 to 1932.
