Design: The influence of Art Deco is apparent here in the hard, angular logo in the upper segment. The chubby label name lettering is also geometrically constructed, with a shadow effect. The round-cornered panels echo the Columbia label from the late 1920s (right).
History: Founded in 1905 in Berlin, Germany. Label scan courtesy of collector Dimitar Malchev of Bulgaria. Label scan below courtesy of collector Florin Caloianu of Romania, who writes: "This record was made by the German Homocord company for the Romanian market. At the foot is the imprint of Mischonzniky SAR, a limited-liability company that had been active in the music industry in Romania since 1886 (and is still in existence as a joint-stock company). Nathan Mischonzniky was a Jewish entrepreneur who was responsible for importing and distributing Perfection, Homocord and Electrecord labels in Romania, and built a production factory there in 1934. The serial numbers shown on the label are identical to those in the Perfection catalogue."
