Design: The full-colour illustration shows an outdoor scene in which young Dutch peasants in traditional dress are clog-dancing to the music issuing from a table-top phonograph sitting on a decorative table; in the far distance is a windmill. The print seems to have been pasted-down over the original label.

The ornament surrounding the lower segment seems to be of the Jugendstil style, which was the German interpretation of Art Nouveau.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Helmut Janisch of Germany.
