On March 23, 1922 Kunstzaal Edison opened its doors. The shop was owned by Larsen de Brey & Co, and was situated at Lange Poten 15 in The Hague. The offices were at Willem de Zwijgerlaan 93 in The Hague. The company imported Farrand loudspeakers and sold New Edison gramophones, as main importer of Thomas A. Edison Inc. De Brey had shops in a number of main cities and also in the former Dutch East-Indies. In the years 1925-1941, radios were sold under the name "Crystalphone". Well known models were the "Crystalphone 4a" and "Junior". Later models (in the 30s) were made by Waldorp and Van der Heem and the German makers Lange and Sachsenwerk. In 1938-1941, German company Körting made radios for Crystalphone.
