Homokord (Germany) / c. 1919

/Design: The nude female harpist has been redrawn, in much clumsier fashion (probably in America; compared with previous label, the woman's expression is quite different) to fit within the area above the shield (identical to that seen on the Emerson label, right). The label name is lettered in a very nice slab-serif style, with angled ends to the serifs.

History: Homophon, the parent company, was established in Germany in 1905. Occasionally spelled 'Homochord,' after 1923 it was often spelled 'Homocord.' Label scan courtesy of collector Dimitar Malchev of Bulgaria.
