Electrocord (Germany) / 1927

Design: The label name is written in 'Sütterlin,' a stylized form of Gothic script developed by Ludvig Sütterlin, a German graphic artist of the early 20th century. Instead of being gently curved, the underlining swash is a straight slash. The logo at the top, although small in scale, is graphically powerful.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany, who notes that this label was a subsidiary of ISI-Werke of Leipzig.
