The top Photo at the model page shows my Nora EW5.  The Photo below is different insofar, as the dial is the typical Nora dial: circular, bearing station names.
My set is missing that type of dial.  But there is no mark of an earlier fit of the old one, which might have been removed and replaced by a different one, not from Nora. I was unable to identify it.
The assumption of a replacement is somehow doubtful since there are, as mentioned above, no traces of a removal.

Just by chance I came across the same dial type, being used on the Burndept "Shortwave Receiver Mk.IV", as depicted in RadioRadio by Jonathan Hill, p.89,fig.226. The same at Burndept´s "Screened Four" and "Universal Screened Five", Hill p.92,fig.252 andp.93, fig.260 resp. The Dials are called "Etholog".

Now my question: Has Burndept probably distributed such Nora radios in the late 20´s? (Notwithstanding the "Buy British" policy). Perhaps replacing the German dial? There have been some German radios been sold in UK, like the Loewe OE333, The Blaupunkt (Blue Spot)VIII slightly modified as "Empire Two" by Burton, or theTelefunken Arcolette as Gecophone"Victor 3",model BC 2930. Why not a Nora set? Dr.Aron,the owner of Nora, had connections to UK.

What may be behind this mystery?

Any hint will be appreciated.
