Design: A slightly different logo than seen on the previous page, with a shorter cap 'L' in the label name. The rest of the lettering is in a stencil style named Futura Black, which is far removed from the rest of the Futura line, designed in Germany in the late 1920s.

History: Launched in 1944 and based in Linden, New Jersey, De Luxe was founded by brothers David and Jules Braun. In 1951 they were bought out by Syd Nathan of King Records. The Charms made their first record in 1953 and their last in 1956. Label scan courtesy of collector Ken Hagelthorn of the U.S.A.
