Design: The label name is done in a modified calligraphic style, with swelled blobs added to some line endings. The double-lined border is worked into a lovely Art Nouveau knot at the foot.

History: This version of the Oxford Disc Record was pressed by Zonophone; Columbia took over the pressing after driving Zonophone out of business. Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
