Antique French "Marquise de Sevigne" chocolate boxes circa late 1800's to early 1900's. These are made from sturdy cardboard with a printed lid. One lid is marked "Le Bonheur Du Menage" and the other is marked "La Complaisance Maternelle". Both boxes are marked on one side with "A LA MARQUISE DE SEVIGNE, 63 Rue de la Pomme, TOULOUSE".
The Marquise de Sévigné brand was founded in Paris in 1892 and still produces luxury chocolate to this day. The brand is named after Madame de Sévigné. She was a famous letter writer who often praised the benefits of chocolate in letters addressed to her daughter. I can understand why the boxes are collectibles. They are just beautiful and can hold a plethera of pretty things.
These are both in good antique condition. Wear, tear and marks commensurate with age.
