Stella was a brand name of the Oscar Schmidt Company of New Jersey - they used it for acoustic guitars and other stringed instruments from around 1899 onwards. The Harmony Company of Chicago bought the Stella brand in 1939 - the Stella brand would have been discontinued around 1975 when Harmony stopped production in the USA.
