Orion (Ecuador) / c. 1955

back next

Design: Orion is the name of a constellation of stars, some shining more brightly than others; in this depiction, Orion appears to be a large shooting star. The design has obviously been given a great deal of attention, with the label name being nicely drawn to fit inside a half-circular panel at the centre. Note the decreasing and increasing sizes of the stars on the outside of the lower segment. Thanks to Graciela Dacosta of Uruguay for noting that the 'MR' initials stand for 'Marca Registrada' (Trade Mark).

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Label scan courtesy of collector and musicologist Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
