Corona (Japan) / c. 1945

Design: A well-arranged symmetrical layout, with the label name 'crowning' the design. The solid pie-shaped quarterings in the upper segment, with the fine-line border, is reminiscent of the King Record/Telefunken design.

History: Thanks for updated info to Jovan Kovacevic of Serbia, who writes: "The Japanese Corona label was owned by the Corona Record Co. Ltd., which was founded in 1936 in Kawasaki and was apparently related to Nippon Polydor in some way."
