What we have here are aviation cards offered by Chocolat Pupier Jolies in 1930 and 1937.
The plain cards denoting: Avion (flying), Un Monoplane (A monoplane), and Un Hydravion (a sea plane) are from 1930, and are part of a larger set of 40 cards that are about modern wonders. I believe.
The other cards are from 1937, I think, are part of Series 19, and show off some of the earlier versions of flight, with specific myths, legends and real accomplishments. I don’t know how many cars there are in this series, but considering it offers specifics, I would suspect there are at least 40, probably 50 cards within the series.
Certainly the 1937 cards have a reverse with a brief account of the card’s aviation moment:
All of these are punched cards (left of card’s image), sized 5.2 cm x 6.87 cm each, and were giveaways with a French chocolate manufacturer’s chocolate product.
I am unable to find out any information on the company as my French language abilities are slim and void.
If anyone can provide some background on the manufacturer Chocolat Pupier Jolies, and just what type of chocolate they produced and how these cards were presented (inside, outside, stapled, I assume?) it would be greatly appreciated.
In the meantime, enjoy a look at these cards.
