Design: A very attractive, carefully-arranged design showing elements of Russian folk art and music using an attractive colour combination. The ornamentation at the side seems to be a stylized, geometric representation of organic forms (perhaps a rose and a thistle?), while the illustration at the top is fully realistic.

History: Unknown (have info? Please contact info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Label scan courtesy of collector Jukka Kettunen of Finland.
