Number of Cards in Set:
Card Size: 1 1/16" x 2"
Issued as insert with what product: Chocolates

Notes: Checklist Incomplete. These can be identified by the "CI.-P" on the front. This may be the same set as the Clovis Film Stars (Clovis on Front, Blank Back). Card number 266 in each of these sets shows the exact same picture of Greta Garbo, the only difference being the two say either "Clovis" or "CI.-P".

Two subjects appear to have been issued for each number (however, three number 239s seen). I have not studied very many of these cards, but I have observed from two different #256 cards that the only real difference I could find between the design of the cards were that the Garbo-Novarro card was missing the dash between "CI.-P" while the Beery-Gable card had the dash, so it is possible that this characteristic could distinguish the two sets from each other.

The numbering for all of the Clovis sets seem to go from 201 to 320.

Clovis was a company from the small town of Pepinster in Belgium that made chocolate candy. The company was in business from 1920 through 1966, when a large fire burned down the factory and put them out of business.

Cards from this set seen with a hole punch - this could be the result of some prize redemption, where the cards had to be turned in for a prize, then they were returned with a punch hole so they could not be redeemed again. Or it could just be the result of some kid with a hole punch messing up the cards.

An album was issued with this set. I have seen Clovis albums in different sizes, so there were at least two different Clovis albums issued. Click the small picture above to see some scans of a Clovis album. In the Clovis album scans pictured, there are a mixture of cards with "CI.-P" and "Clovis" on the front pasted into the album.
