His Master’s Voice

On July 10, 1900, “His Master’s Voice” was registered with the U.S. Patent Office as the trademark for the Victor Recording Company (later known as RCA Victor). The painting of a terrier named Nipper looking into the horn of a phonograph machine is by British artist Francis Barraud.  The image became an icon and one of the most recognized corporate trademarks of the 20th century and beyond.

  1. Mr. Kopp, When Burr Tilstrom, my grandfather’s nephew bought my grandfather a television set and old record player, the record player was in several pieces. My granddad loved the sound part of the old machine. The record player photo above great idea for invention when the machine was built. My dad had one also. Thanks, “Yes, We Have No Bananas. We have no Bananas Today, we have…” Sounded old, the record thick, but 6 year old kids does not know the difference. atk
