Crown Record

Crown Record (U.K.) / c. 1908

back next

Design: A very nicely balanced symmetrical design, with a wiry border that complements the well-drawn crown logo. The label name lettering is virtually identical to that seen on other German-made labels (e.g. Jumbo-Record).

History: Another German-made record being marketed in England prior to WWI, whose masters were drawn from the Polyphon catalogue. Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
