Zuvkonis (Tsarist Russia) / c. 1909

Design: The illustration of a Greek muse, crowned with a laurel circlet, carrying an Aeolian harp in her left hand and producing a slew of records from a screw-type printing press with her right, bears remarkable similarities to the later Fonotipia label (right), though angel's wings have been added to the Fonotipia figure. The panel bearing the serial number is treated like a brass plate, held on with screw-heads.

History: Unknown. Label scan courtesy of collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
