Design: The label name is lettered in a rather crude angular roman, whose large x-height recalls the 'half-uncial' style, popular in Ireland from the 1st to the 8th centuries. The outline in the background is that of a shamrock leaf, well-known as a symbol of Ireland.

History: Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K. This label, in existence in the late 1940s and early 1950s, only issued material of an Irish nature.
