Hallo Record (Germany) / c. 1922

Design: The typography is identical to the Electrocord label of the same era (right); 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. The green and gold colour combination does not have the best contrast for legibility.

History: Evidently one of several sub-labels of the Isiphon company, which used the stylized singing bird-in-the-nest image. Label scan courtesy of musicologist and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
