Swan (U.S.A.) / c. 1952

Design: Some rather thin-looking lettering for the label name, which echoes the swan's long neck, is intertwined with the delicate illustration, and gently follows the curve of the spindle hole. A light smudge representing water joins the two lily-pads at either side, giving the unit some horizontal stability to balance the vertical emphasis of the lettering.

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Label scan courtesy of disc jockey John Worthington of CKUA radio network, Alberta, Canada.
