Labels, Pretty Labels

Sure, there are still berets made with very pretty, or interesting,  labels - the French NIEBLA for example, or  the Bakarra and PeBeO labels by the same manufacturer (Blancq Olibet). But, the Golden Days of pretty labels seem to be behind us.
Here are some scanned labels from my own collection. They are all French, 1950's - 1960's and all sending out the message how good these berets are for bad weather.
The latter two carry a strong resemblance to the NIEBLA, one of few berets that survived un-changed for many decades.
