Tip Top 2

Tip Top (Poland) / c. 1919

Design: The sinuous, organic lines of Art Nouveau influence are very apparent, but the triangular line-endings can be seen on another German-made label, Albion Record. The label name lettering has been hand-drawn, with some visual compensation being made for outward radial spread.

History: Though the record is by a Polish singer, the country of origin might well be Germany (compare graphics with the Aga-Platte and Beatall designs). Any connection with the British label of the same name is doubtful (see previous page). Label scan courtesy of collector Lucyna Lachowicz of Poland.
