P H Suchard
I am trying to find out some information on the above Suchard's chocolate ephemera which I have just inherited from my grandmother and hoped that you might be able to help? I have got about 30 small matchbox-sized envelopes, each containing a small, carefully folded piece of paper with either a score of music or a poem.
Each envelope is approximately 6 x 4cms (2¼ x 1½ins) and has a small red, wax seal on the reverse and the words "P H Suchard". The paper is very thick, good quality and the gold embossing is rich and well done. Each contains a unique piece of coloured paper, the language is all in French.
Q Does anyone know anything about these? I have searched the internet and have not found any information at all. Any clues your members or fellow collectors can give me would be greatly appreciated.
