Unicorn Record

Unicorn Record (U.K.) / c. 1913

back next

Design: A very beautiful and delicate unicorn, the mythical horned horse that could never be caught by huntsmen, but could only be captured while laying its head in the open lap of a maiden, gallops lightly over a rococo field. However, he is still wearing the collar and chain that once tethered him to the royal coat of arms of England.

History: A rare label, pasted over existing (old) stock. One of many German-made products flooding the British market prior to WWI. Label scan courtesy of collector and musicologist Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
