Design: A rather uninspired design but featuring some trendy lettering for the label name. The stiff-angled border design can also be seen on other contemporary German-made labels such as Albion, Invicta and Era.

History: One of many pre-WWI labels made in Germany ('Prussia') for the British market, and which did not survive beyond the outbreak of hostilities. Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K., who notes that this label drew its masters from Edison Bell, Jumbo and elsewhere.
