That version of parlophon is very nice. There is another Verdon with a slightly different look, the record label is different, etc.
BTW, the lady has placed the arm at the wrong side of the record :D it seems one of those horrible visions... And the crank is on the left!
Just an idea...
If you reverse the image, things look much better, except for the lettering.

I think the image was created with "artistic license"... :lol:

Returning to pink labels, this is undoubtedly the rarest in my collection. Once again the winding handle is on the left!

How beautiful! The lettering type suggests a German product...
