Here is another Humanatone old box. The logo and typo correspond to the trade-mark that was renewed by James John Stivers on April 18, 1905 (45056, reg. Aug. 1, 1905) : a lion rampant, grabbing a tuplet of semiquavers, like playing an harp (check this post for more details).
The 2 other boxes we know and which were shown here, were the ones of what I assume to be a "Style 30" model for the oldest one, and of a "Style O." for the red one. This one was the case of a "STYLE No.20".
How many "styles" were issued? Which were they and to what did they correspond ?
