1911 - 1919

Russian label produced by Общества Экстрафонъ (Extraphone Co.) in Kiev between 1911 and 1919. The same company also released the label "Артистотипия".

"At the beginning of the last century along with Petersburg, Moscow, Riga and Warsaw, the fifth «gramophone» Capital of the Russian empire was Kiev. The branch of the Berlin company «International Extra Record» started to operate there in 1909. Originally, Germans performed their operations on the shores of Neva River via «The Trading House Guess», but serious Capital's rivals had forced them to search for other markets and partners. The choice had fallen on Ukraine – the land, rich in musical traditions and bright talents…"  A.Tikhonov.
