Fonotenica (Italy) / c. 1924

Design: The design above obviously mimics the redesigned Brunswick label (right) which made its first appearance in 1919 as a test-run in the Canadian market. Whether these companies had formal business connections is unknown. (See the 'La Fonotecnica' entry for comments on the design of the label below.)

History: Label scans above and below courtesy of collector Giuliana Fugazzotto of Italy, who writes: "The La Fonotecnica/Fonotecnica labels appear on either side of same record!"
