Design: The influence of Art Deco may be seen in the bold lines and the angular, mechanical-looking lettering of the label name.

History: 'Cyrnos' is the Greek name for Corsica, the rugged island west of the coast of Italy and birthplace of the French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, whose profile may be the one appearing above the spindle hole. Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
