Design: Translated, the label name reads 'Czechoslovak National Socialist Party.' The custom-drawn monoline lettering, with each letter in the semicircle carefully drawn to be wider at the top than at the bottom, is in the Art Deco style, a product of the set square and compass. The colour red is generally associated with the socialist movement.

History: Ultraphon, a German company, was owned by Küchenmeister of Holland. Label scan courtesy of collector Gabriel Gössel of Czechoslovakia, who writes: "The white label was used for political speeches between 1934 and 1937."
