Now here is something from the Jazz Age to crow about. This large, life-size, mint condition Pathé rooster was used as an advertising display in record stores for Pathé Phonographs and Records. The rooster can be dated from possibly 1914 to the late 1920’s.

Some Pathé history from Wikipedia
Founded as Société Pathé Frères in Paris, France on September 28, 1896 by brothers Charles, Émile, Théophile, and Jacques Pathé, during the first part of the 20th century, Pathé became the largest film equipment and production company in the world as well as a major producer of phonograph records. In 1908, Pathé invented the newsreel that was shown in theaters prior to the feature film. The news clips featured the Pathé logo of a crowing rooster at the beginning of each reel.

In 1902, Pathé registered the rooster trademark in the United States but we do not actually know when the Pathé rooster was first introduced in the record stores.

The Pathé rooster photographs shown here are contributed by collector Nancy Stanley, the proud owner of the prized rooster. Another stunning photograph of the Pathé rooster comes from Ray Holland (see last photo at bottom of this page).

If anyone can date and/or provide more information on the Pathé rooster, do not hesitate to email me.
