Deutsche Grammophon, or Deutsche Grammophon Gesellschaft is the main label of the Deutsche Grammophon GmbH record company. This label was in use since 1949. Before that the label used was Grammophon, which appeared with the His Master's Voice dog-trademark. 
Deutsche Grammophon Gesellschaft mbH was founded in 1898 by German-born American citizen Emile Berliner as the German branch of his Berliner Gramophone Company. Soon, in 1900, the 'Gesellschaft' (company) was converted into Deutsche Grammophon-Aktiengesellschaft. Based in  Hanover. The company had links with the U.S. Victor Talking Machine Company and the British HMV, but severed ties to these companies at the onset of World War I. 
In 1937, after falling sales, Deutsche Grammophon AG was liquidated and the company was reconverted to the Deutsche Grammophon Gesellschaft mbH. 
In 1941 Deutsche Grammophon was purchased by the Siemens & Halske Electronics Company. Its distinctive stylized tulip logo was introduced in 1949 after it had sold the German rights to the His Master's Voice trademark (including the famous image of the dog and gramophone) to Electrola, the German branch of EMI. 
In 1962 Siemens formed a joint venture with Netherlands based Philips to create the DGG/PPI Record Group, which later became known as PolyGram.
