Design: The stylized image in the upper segment, which (once again) reflects the widespread contemporary interest in classical mythology and archaeology, shows a pair of figures rowing a carved boat with a furled sail, its mast being formed from a stringed lyre with a frame carved like a dove and hung with garlands of flowers. Though unclear, the image may have to do with the Greek mythological legend of Jason and the Argonauts, who took ship to recover a golden fleece, being at one point in their travels aided by a dove. The label name appears in a Victorian-era condensed Latin, with wedge-shaped serifs and blobby decorations. The overall treatment, including the Victorian-style belt and decoration across the centre is virtually identical to that seen on the earlier Heliophon-Record (right).
History: Label scan courtesy of collector Gabriel Gössel of Czechoslovakia, who writes: "This was a made-to-order label produced by S. Weiss & Co. of Berlin, established in 1907. The Czech program was an unattractive one, featuring brass bands and almost no vocals. The matrices were obtained from Beka and Lindström."
