Design: The quirky image of a stylized hand-cranked phonograph with a genie-like figure holding the sound horns to its ears in stereophonic fashion occupies the upper segment, the label name following the outer curve in the old-fashioned way.

History: Launched in 1924 as the export label of Deutsche Grammophon. Alternate colour label scans below courtesy of collectors Dimitar Malchev of Bulgaria and Georg Richter of Germany.
