LA GLORIA

La Gloria was manufactured by Dominion Radio and Electrical Corporation Ltd, they had various distributors. Currently there are 13 documented models.

In 1956, Dominion Radio and Electrical introduced the La Gloria brand name to market a budget line of radiograms and appliances - and this name all-but took over from DRECO's main brand, Philco, within a couple of years. 

The name 'La Gloria' had been used by the DRECO managing directors father years earlier in his K-Road business, La Gloria Gramophones - so while there might be earlier examples of audio equipment found with the La Gloria brandname, they are only indirectly related.
