Polyphon Record (Germany) / c. 1908

Design: A very attractive illustration in the classical Art Nouveau style, consisting of a wreath of elongated leaves and berries enclosing a reclining Muse in along flowing gown, who is listening to a small tabletop phonograph. In contrast to the finely-drawn illustration, the label name is clumsily hand-lettered.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Helmut Janisch of Germany.
