Design: The 'windscreen-wiper' design can be seen on other labels, notably Telefunken. With its tidy typographic treatment, the label does seem to have been influenced by German design.

History: G. Schirmer Inc. of New York, founded in 1861 as a classical music publishing company, is still active today in name, though the company was sold in the 1960s to other interests. Label scan courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany.
