Magra (France) / c. 1938

Design: Obviously the same design as the Rex label of England, with the same blurb: "Hear the music you want, when you want it." As with the British label, the lettering around the outer edge and across the centre stripe has been skilfully done by hand, and is more than likely from the same art studio. Also, the label name on both has been given some inventive treatment; while the E on the Rex label shows a fluid cross-bar, here the apexes of the A point downward at an unusual angle.
