Maria Record [Hits: 24545]
Discuss on forum [2]

In 1907 Beka-Record issued several records with Maria-Record label. Probably, they were made by order of Benois family. Only soloist of Marijinsky Theater in St. Petersburg Maria Nikolayevna Kuznetsova-Benois (1880-1966) was ever recorded on them. The labels were decorated with her photograph, but information about manufacturer was missing. Their origination from Beka-Record can be with great degree of certainty established by matching graphic styles of the matrix numbers on the records mirrors (dead wax between label and last groove) as well as the fact that they aligned with the series of Russian matrix numbers of Beka-Record for 1907.

The label sample is from Bill Breslin collection.
