Another of the Crystalate mini discs, Oliver records were available in three sizes: 5", 6" and 7". Like Mimosa, they were available from the early 1920s until about 1930.

It seems the label was produced in two slightly differnt colourings, the red background (first image) and orange background (second image - thanks to Grahame Meachen for this one). My guess is that the orange background was for the very earliest issues (rather like the early Mimosa label was orange before changing to red).

The pale blue label scan shown on the right was kindly sent to me by Rainer Lotz; I don't know if the label colour changed for other issues, or if this was a special issue.

 

This listing is mostly from data accumulated by the late Arthur Badrock.
Please e-mail
me if you can help me fill in the gaps in any of these series.

Thank you to the following for providing extra information:  John Banks, Bruce Bastin, Greg Butler, John Culley, Graham Farnell, Robert Girling, Grahame Meachen, Caspar Rutten, Jill Vallance
