Globophon Record 1

Globophon Record (U.K.) / c. 1912

back next

Design: An attractive decorative panel, with vertical and horizontal shading. The fine line work would require a high quality of printing, which is evident here (gold ink is difficult to work with, but during the late 19th century the Germans had made great advances in printing science and made the highest quality inks).

History: Made in Germany and marketed in England. Label scan courtesy of collector Graham Farnell of the U.K. Image below (from a 1911 edition of Phonographsche Zeitschrift) courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany.
