Design: The collage of images used for the logo consist of an orb (a circular globe representing the world and surmounted by a cross, symbolizing the superiority of Christ over all), positioned on a tasselled cushion, with two crossed sceptres (symbols of royal authority) in front, flanked by legal notices. The main line of lettering follows the outer curve of the label, in a ultra-bold stub-serif display type, which was popular in contemporary newspaper and print advertising.
History: The Regal label in Britain was a Columbia subsidiary. Musicologist and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K. notes: "The label lasted from December 1920 until February 1937. Most of its first 600-plus releases were re-issues from old Columbia masters. This example, recorded in April 1910, first appeared on the Rena label (Rena 1348)."
