VHTF ISI 1038 Saxony 10" 78rpm shellac Exc Birds Carnival/Two Finches pre-WWI For Sale
VHTF ISI 1038 Saxony 10" 78rpm shellac Exc Birds Carnival/Two Finches pre-WWI:
Scarce I.S.I. Saxony label. Internationale Schallplatten Industrie based in Leipzig applied for the label patent in 1910, and the four-language label is the norm in the examples I've found. The English-only labels were produced for the UK market with some recordings originating in London, but the bulk of those appeared on the red Isiphone Concert Series label for which ISI received the patent in 1912. I've only found one other original black & gold label English-only recordings in any collections, so these are quite rare. From a local estate.
