Summary:

Andersons Pty Ltd (Voxola); Melbourne

From 1925 Andersons traded in the sale of pianos and gramophones. In February they patented the name “Voxola” for talking machines. In the 1930’s they sold radios named Voxola.

Founded: 1925
History:

It is not clear who manufactured these radios or if they were imports from the US. The introduction of wireless import tariffs in 1930 would have prevented the import of US radios. There are no advertisements for Voxola radios after 1943.

This manufacturer was suggested by Gary Cowans.
