Design: The vertical strokes of the hand-drawn block-serif lettering for the label name splay outward (note the uneven weight of the verticals of the 'H').

History: This obscure label, in existence between 1907 and 1910, was likely produced by the renegade Leeds & Catlin company, who also produced the very similar-looking Clarion Record. Why the label should have been given such a strange name is unknown. Label and sticker scan (below, attached to the reverse side) courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany.
