Concert Record Gramophone 2

Concert Record "Gramophone" (Germany) / 1912

Design: A well-drawn lithographic image of Nipper at the gramophone (not done from photographic separations, but a hand-drawn rendering). The 'scribing angel' of Zonophone is mostly obscured here by the interesting royalty stamp, showing Nipper in a cruder fashion.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany, who notes that as the premiere of the operetta above was in mid-November 1911, the release date would probably be sometime in the following year, and that this would seem to be an export version.
