Design: A strong design, with the bright red background, strong typography and the image of the lion. The banner containing the label name, with semicircles at the extremities, is reminiscent of the Pathe design (right).

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Gabriel Gössel of Czechoslovakia, who writes: "Leophon was pressed by Hermann Maassen on behalf of wholeseller Sigmund Geiger Co., which was based in the Moravian city of Brno; since 1912, Mr. Geiger had represented the ITMC and Odeon labels in Bohemia."
