Victorian Women Stollwerck German Card Set 1899 Glamour Poses Fashion Dress

In 1867 Stollwerck Bros became the first chocolate company in Germany to issue cards with its products and in the first year after introduction , the company's turnover doubled .The Company issued many more card sets and in 1899 issued its 2nd album of sets each containing 6 cards . I have on auction here Set 63 from that album , totally original and dating from 1899 in used but overall fair condition front and rear . The cards each measure approx 1.5 ins x 3.5 ins are beautifully illustrated and have very detailed information on the rear in German containing the set and card number , manufacturer details and description of the subject illustration . This is a very rare set indeed . I am also offering other sets from the same series on this auction .
