Design: A young woman dressed in a long gown holding two discs with enlarged spindle holes sings into the horn of a beautifully-drawn table-top phonograph. Whether the company made recordings as well as marketed them is unknown.

History: Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Helmut Janisch of Germany. From Internet sources it has been discovered that this was a Swedish record label owned by Selma Hillström in Helsingborg, being registered in January 1917. The Swedish word 'skivor' means 'disks.'
