Original-Goldora-Platte (Germany) / c. 1926

Design: The charming image is very close in concept to other designs of the era, particularly the Perfection Concert Record (right); both show listeners in a home parlour enjoying the sound of a table-top phonograph. A detail of each illustration appears below.

History: Probably related to the Goldora Record label, of which collector Georg Richter writes: "The label was one of several launched by Hermann Eisner of Berlin. According to Horst H. Lange (author of Die deutsche 78er Diskographie der Hot Dance und Jazz-Musik 1903-1958), it was active from 1926 to 1927." Label scan courtesy of collector Helmut Janisch of Germany.
