Design: The much reduced label name seems to be coarsely hand-drawn, possibly by the same hand that drew the mask-like image at the centre. The delicate pen script either side of the mask is in strong contrast to the rough contours of the illustration.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Gabriel Gössel of Czechoslovakia, who writes: "This label was used for recordings of artists at the National Theatre in Prague performing various plays during the Nazi occupation period, between 1939 and 1945."
