Design: An attractive and well-balanced design, featuring a bold block-serif font for the label name which follows the outer curve and contrasts with the flowing script below.

History: Evidently Cordion was an American company marketing to a Scandinavian ethnic niche. Collector Kjell Thorsen of Norway notes that Eric Olzen, a Swedish/American accordion player, recorded this track in New York in 1943.
