From approximately 1927 to about 1931, B & D added the Roy Smeck  name to it's line of Silver Bells. Roy was a very famous entertainer from the 1920's to the late 1960's. He died just a few years ago in his late 90's. He was a major vaudeville star, and made many recordings, as well as appearing on the radio and in movies. He was billed as "The Wizard of the Strings".
