This extemely rare label was a German-produced one from pre-WWI using Dacapo masters and with E-series side numbers (no catalogue numbers) which are also the master numbers.
The reverse side of the first one shown is E-539 Roses From The South (Strauss) by the same orchestra. These sides were also issued on Dacapo 25 & 23 respectively.
This information is from Don Taylor in Australia. Maybe they are so scarce in England because it was not sold there, but produced for Australia only?

Thanks to Bill Dean-Myatt for the second label image.
