Fetherflex

One of the many eccentric products associated with Noel Pemberton-Billing, Fetherflex records were lightweight and unbreakable, make of a similar material to the later Duophone unbreakables. Fetherflex date from the early 1920s and were very short-lived and are very rare nowadays. In fact, I suspect they only sold in small quantites at the time; it is not known who they were made for, or who was selling them.
I believe that they may be German recordings, but if so, I don't know the source, it would seem unlikely they would be original recordings specifically for the label, if they are of German origin.

Thanks to Bill Dean-Myatt for providing the label photo.
