PARIS. Action Nominative de F500. blue, black. No 3153. Delicate vignette of classical ladies, with cocoa trees, coffee and tea-bushes. The company of Pelletier & Cie was founded in Paris in 1853, producing chocolates at a factory in Paris. It did a lot of business in Alsace-Lorraine, and had many problems after the cession of the provinces to Germany in 1871. It was decided to form a new independent company to take over the Pelletier market in Alsace-Lorraine. This is it. It was to establish a new factory locally to make chocolates for the local market.This also had the advantage of avoiding new taxes imposed by the French government on chocolate-makers. Note that this is not the usual yellow/brown type. Rare.
