Chocolat du Planteur

Chocolat du Planteur is the brand name of a French Chocolate sold around 1900. The artist was Louis Bourgeois-Borgex (1873-1959). It was the thing to do to sell your chocolate and give away a pretty card with each bar. They don’t really count as playing cards but they are easy on the eye. This pack is a Repro from around the 1990s sent to me by my friend in Paris Béatrice Michielsen whom I have known for many years ever since she contacted me to get hold of some Alice in Wonderland card games for an exhibition she was planning at the Issy Museum with the Curator Agnès Barbier who then came over to Norfolk to collect them. Béatrice is a children’s card game designer and publisher under the brand name “Dagobert”.
