Starr Gennett 3

Starr Gennett (Canada) / 1922

back next

Design: As in the original Gennett design, the Starr name now appears in Gothic rather than Roman lettering, and follows the same arc shape. However, the shorter word-shape does not work quite as well. The outer hexagonal shape is further cut back, and only two sections of decorative fill remain (why the shape of a star was never utilized remains a question). Label scan above courtesy of collector Jean Theriault of Canada.

History: Herbert Berliner's Compo company was the umbrella organization for several labels, of which Starr was one.
