The Leader Record (U.K.) / c. 1913

Design: A wild-haired conductor (the leader?) energetically directs affairs behind a pair of overlapped scrolls, one of which has blobby-ended fishtails. The lettering style for the label name is based on that commonly used in copperplate engraving, and thus bears the name 'copperplate gothic.'

History: A German-made pre-WWI label sold door-to-door on the hire-purchase system. Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
