Grammophon (Germany) / c. 1912

Design: A simple design with the label name running in a curve around the upper segment (suggesting a pre-war design), with inward-pointing caret-marks at either end, in the place of the more usual '69' English-language quotation marks. The spindle-hole also appears to be protected by a brass insert. Though the design is simple and clear, red and gold is not the most legible of colour combinations.

History: Label scan courtesy of musicologist and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
