Parlophone Vatican (Germany) / c. 1919

back next

Design: A monochrome photograph of the Sistine-Vatican male voice choir, assembled on rows of raised steps. The Parlophone name is lettered in a stronger font of capitals than usual; the usual highly-detailed floral border is re-interpreted into a frilly, stylized leaf-ornament.

History: A pre-World War I label owned by Carl Lindström, a German businessman. The label disappeared during WWI, but was revived in later years.
