Eterna

Eterna (Germany) / c. 1951

Design: The often-used imagery of an aeolian harp combined with laurel leaves is given a fresh new treatment, in delicate, thin, partly-screened line work, over a background of sun-rays radiating from the spindle hole. A line of finely-drawn calligraphic lettering follows the graceful sweep of the spray of laurel leaves. The label name, by contrast, is massive and chiselled, but the thin white release around the letters ties it in with the illustration.

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca).
