Issuing Company: Chocolaterie Dedeystere
Country of Issue: France (Normandy)
Year of Issue: 1931
Color/B&W: B&W
Number of Cards in Set:
Card Size: 2" x 2 7/8"
Issued as insert with what product: Chocolates

Notes: Checklist incomplete. Seldom-seen set. French collector Serge Plumecocq states that he only knows of two cards from this set and owns one of them. There was an album issued with this set. The two known cards show a film actress and a female aviator. Unknown at this time what other subjects are in the set.

The Dedeystere chocolate factory was located in Conde sur Noireau (Normandy). After World War II, this chocolate factory changed its name to "Chocolaterie Suisse Normande," because the region is so beautiful that it is often compared to Switzerland.

Date info: The Maryse Hilsz card has some text about a famous flight she took from Paris to Saigon and back, which took place in 1930. Renee Adoree stopped acting after 1930 and died in 1933, so this set was probably issued in around 1931.

Thanks to Serge Plumecocq for helping with this checklist.
