Viking (Sweden) / c. 1914

Design: The manufacturer's name is given prominence, while the ship image is very understated. The design might have been much better with those priorities reversed. The fonts used for the imprinting seem to date from the 1890s, but the lettering for the label name is up-to-date.

History: Evidently made by the AB Svenska Fonogram Manufacturing Company of Stockholm. Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
