Notes: Checklist may not be complete. Unnumbered. Vienna's oldest tea company, established in 1850. For the "Filmstar-Bilder-Serie" (Film Star Card Series), the backs are identical and no album was planned or issued.

Date info: 1930 has been chosen as the year of issue for 3 reasons: It was the break-out year for Bernice Claire with 5 movies, including the original version of "No, No, Nanette"; 1930 was the high point of Jeanette Loff's career, after which she took a break from movies for 4 years; and after 1929 Lenore Ulric even outdid Loff by taking a break from movies for 7 years.

Thanks to Nick Bolton for help with this checklist.
