Candy Boxes

1935?  Two French cardboard chocolate boxes.  7” x 3⅜” picturing “Two Doves”; WL; MM; FC; and TMCM.  5” x 3⅞” featuring two mice opening a box of chocolate mice!  Heavy cardboard.  “Made in France.”  $10 from chad555, Pottstown, PA, on Ebay, Dec., ’20.

What a lovely find!  The covers feature simple, charming multicolored scenes.  This little pair of treasures comes from the parent of a student at a fellow Jesuit University, the University of San Francisco.  And what about these mice – town and country? – who find themselves offered chocolate mice?!
