There were three records of this name. The first was a 7" and 10" disc dating from about 1907. It was made by the Disc Record company of Harrow and used Nicole masters; the 7" being made of the same sort of material as Nicole records and the 10" being standard shellac. (see first example).
Thanks to F. Finnigan of Holland for the label image.

The second label may only have been sold in Australia. These were pressed by Homophon in Germany prior to WWI and  it had a 2000- catalogue series (see second example).

The third label, actually "Universal Double Disc" was also manufactured by Homophon in Germany for the Australian market  prior to WWI, sometimes the label is just a paste-over. The catalogue ran from 8000 to just over 8400. (See third example).

Thanks to Adam Miller and Bill Dean-Myatt for providing the second and third label scans.


This is a first attempt at a listing. Please e-mail me if you can help me fill in the gaps in any of these series.

Thanks to the following for providing information: Paul Cleary, Mike Comber, David Kent, Paul Kilmartin, Bruce Watt
