Design: The logo, impressed on a red wax 'seal,' now shows a pipe organ with gothic proportions. The background to the logo shows the same 'flash' treatment as appearing on the Polydor label.

History: Thanks to collector Georg Richter of Germany for the following updated info re the history of Polyphon: "The original Polyphon (from 'Polyphon Werke') did not merge with Polydor [as earlier suggested here]. The DGG ('Grammophon') became a subsidiary of Polyphon for political reasons." Label scan courtesy of collector Jukka Kettunen of Finland.
