Design: The V-shape is evident but not as strongly defined as on the previous label.

History: Telefunken was founded in 1903 as a joint venture between two large German companies, Siemens & Halske and Allegemeine Elektrizitats-Gesellschaft. However, the record label of the same name was not launched until 1932 when Telefunken decided to take over the record technology and matrices from the bankrupt Küchenmeister conglomerate (thanks to collector Georg Richter for updated info).
