Design: A small-size label with basic typography, made more dynamic by the extended strokes in the label name.

History: Label scan courtesy of musicologist and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K., who notes that this label was in circulation between 1926 and 1932. Collector Georg Richter of Germany adds: "This title was recorded and manufactured by the German Crystalate company (Kristall) in Berlin-Reinickendorf for the Woolworth store chain in Germany. Series 10, 15cm in diameter, were issued between 1926 and 1932; series 100 - 600, 20cm in diameter, were issued between 1929 and 1935. The matrix number shown here would suggest 1929 as a release date."
