Hi David, Yes the label is the same as yours. I believe it is also designed in 1946 and is design number 4691.  I was provided a link to some line art drawings indicating that was the design number. Robert is going to confirm that, but he thought it looked right. It is apparently also a label that was not really used after 1950 on Beranek pieces.

Craig and all - I found this Beranek recently at a local picker's market. The beauty, especially in sunlight, of this piece is quite something.

Mac, that is a great colour -- I have two of those, the smaller one is white, while the larger one has a hint of turquoise, but nothing compared to yours...

Nice find. It's a stronger green than any other one I've seen. Where about in Canada are you, Mac?

Mac,

Thanks. I was asking as most of the pieces I've seen in Canada were in Quebec or BC. Good to know the're in Ontario, too.
