Design: The peacock-tail-like fan above the spindle hole also appears on the Lyrophon label from Germany (right); whether there was any business connection between the two labels is unknown.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Gabriel Gössel of Czechoslovakia, who writes: "These records were pressed by the Sirena Sprechmaschinen-Vertriebs-GmbH company of Berlin for Prague wholesellers Kettner & Riedl. The matrices were obtained from Homophon."
