Design: The bed of flowers has been dropped in favour of a gradated background, the label name enlarged, redrawn and repositioned so as to clear the spindle hole.

History: As the previous page. Scans above and below courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany, who writes: "Violinist and bandleader Marek Weber (1888-1964) did his first recordings in 1919 for Lindström on the Parlophon label. In May 1926 he shifted to Deutsche Grammophon, where he produced no records of interest. in September 1926 he switched labels again, this time to Electrola. Of Jewish extraction, he left Germany in 1933, when Jews were under threat from the Nazi regime, and travelled via London to the U.S.A. On his Parlophon records he often scribed his signature in the wax before the cutting was done (see below)."
