Design: The label name, on a curve above the centre hole, shows curving, organic brackets halfway up the main stems. Silver printing is less frequently to be seen on early labels than gold.

History: The Crystallate company launched this label in 1920, its one-dimensional design obviously lifted wholesale from the American label of the same name, which had been active between 1904 and 1909. The business relationship between the two entities is unknown.
