Design: Jagged flashes below the label name suggest the new technology used in the recording, and the layout reflects an attempt to modernize the earlier design; curving shapes, decorative Gothic lettering, scrollwork, ornamental dots and drapery have been deleted in favour of more dynamic graphics.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany, who notes: "From data published by German discographer Horst H. Lange, the Clausophon label was produced by Clemens Claus AG of Thalheim, being later known as Clausophon GmbH of Berlin. Eventually, the label would belong to the Küchenmeister group of affiliated labels (which included Ultraphon, etc.)."
