That's interesting, Iñigo, thanks for posting! It has a very similar design to the French gramophone cover of the period, the main difference being the reddish color of the French version.

@Carlos, yes. My examples are all green encrypt one, the older one, which is also red, and prior to 1915, from when the Spanish branch was dependent from France and named Gramophone... Will go next.
@epigramophone, I cannot tell much about Cesar Vicente, except that it must have been a large business with many years life, for your sleeve is easily found here, I have several of them. They also sold machines (to which they added their dealer plaque) and needles with their own brand. I believe I've seen even custom made machines with their own brand name.
