SET OF 3 SWISS SUCHARD CHOCOLATE & COCOA ADVERTISING BOOKMARKS FROM AROUND 1900
Very rare embossed, chromo-lithographed and diecut bookmarks from the turn of the 19th century.
The Swiss chocolate company started in 1826 in Neuchatel and was the largest chocolate producer at the end of
the century. The outer form of these bookmarks correspond to so-called stock or overprint bookmarks which were
produced by German companies in sophisticated processes to cover the demand for quality advertising book-
marks of the era from 1895 onward. They were produced as ready-made blank bookmarks which could be
(over)printed by the advertising text of divers companies
(courtesy of Georg Hartong: Overprint bookmarks, TBS News July 2014)
Our bookmarks here, however,  were specially designed for the company Suchard as can be recognized by the
use of the company name integrated in the illustrations.  Customized stock bookmarks were produced for very
large companies only and were rather rare as compared to the simply overprinted versions.

  
embossed, printed & diecut card - 14.5 cm approx. - some slight creases, condition is good

    Attention: these bookmarks are offered as a single copy. In some rare cases if  your order collides
