Cleopatra Records (U.S.A. ethnic) / c. 1938

Design: The scroll and pseudo-Gothic lettering for the label name is amateurishly drawn, but is not without charm. However, Gothic script seems to be an inappropriate choice for the label name (Cleopatra, queen of Egypt), which surely suggests of Middle Eastern rather than European connotations. The imprinting is done with Linotype fonts; likely this is an American production meant for an ethnic market.

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Label scan courtesy of collector Ken Hagelthorn.
