Design: The visual letterspacing on the label name is uneven, perhaps caused by the wide 'A.' The illustration at the top, showing the Sphinx with pyramids in the background, suggests an Egyptian ethnic market. Silver on a burgundy background would become a popular colour combination in the early 1950s.

History: As suggested on an earlier label, the label was likely based in Boston, U.S.A. and marketed to Arabic-speaking segments of the eastern U.S. seaboard. Label scan courtesy of collector Ken Hagelthorn of the U.S.A.
