Number of Cards in Set:
Card Size:
Issued as insert with what product: Chocolates

Notes: Checklist incomplete. Serie A consists of 60 subjects, Serie C 30 subjects, Serie D 30 subjects, Serie E 50 subjects, Serie G 50 subjects, Serie L unknown number of subjects. The letters in between probably suggest other series were issued.

For Serie A, card #3 back states 40 subjects. The 1-40 cards look different from numbers 41-60 which were probably additional cards issued later.

More than one subject may exist for some cards, others show the same image but for different numbers. There appear to be many duplicate images both within the same series and across other series.

There was an album issued with this set. In an album that was observed, cards from Series H, I, and K were in it, along with Loriot cards from a 1937 Paris International Exposition set.

French collector Serge Plumecocq adds some information about this set. It is about very beautiful set of cards which was issued with candies sold in movie theatres. The company was located in Strasbourg. Collectors had to wait until the H series for an album to finally come out. The album pages are blank, so collectors could put the images you want and where you want. The company recommended 5 or 6 images per page to stick with good SECOL glue. The photos are of high quality, they bear the name of the star on the front and the number of the image on the back without mentioning the name of the star here, which means that once pasted, you no longer know the number of the star so it is difficult to figure out the card numbers once pasted in albums.

Thanks to Richard Minns, Amit Benyovits, and Serge Plumecocq for helping with this checklist.
