Information: 

Manuel Segura was a classical guitar brand sold by John E. Dallas and Sons (J.E.D. & S) of London.  There is some evidence that these guitars were not made in Spain but were made in Italy by S, Sgroi Silvestri and re-labelled by Dallas with a more Spanish sounding (but made up) name. This is because the Manuel Segura guitars have common features with Silvestri guitars which are not seen on Spanish instruments. Manuel Segura classical guitars were sold from the 1950s up to the 1970s - so may have had various makers over this time period.
