The history of this label begins in August, 1910 when three German businessmen Gottlieb (Bogdan) Moll, Albert Vogt and August Kybarth founded on the Aprelevka station of the Moscow-Kiev railway road the first in Russia records pressing plant for manufacturing shellac mass for gramophone records as well as pressing records taking orders from others gramophone companies. Soon after, the factory started manufacturing its own original records…
«Luxophone» was the earliest label of the Aprelevka factory. The records with such label were issued by the end of 1910. Soon after, they changed the trade mark to «Metropol- Record». All records issued earlier under the «Luxophone» label were re-issued in 1911 under «Metropol- Record» while bearing the same catalogue numbers. «Luxophone» label design is mimicry under «Zonophone». Probably, at the very beginning they planned to issue piratical records, but enactment of the Copyright Law
In 1913 «Partnership Shuster & Co» made a contract with gramophone company «Moll, Fogt and Kibart» according to which the later should press 500 thousands records on the «Metropol Record» plant that belongs to that company. The records will have «Corona Record» label for distribution in Riga, Kiev, Cherson, and Orenburg provinces. This way, the records with «Corona Record» label are essentially the same as records with «Metropol Record» label
