These two images came from a 1923 chocolate recipe book,
published by Walter Baker & Co.
I sure would love to get my hands on one
of the original cocoa tins – it’s a little work of art!
They are perfect for a winter project, when we all want to sip lots of hot cocoa!
Walter Baker and Company is the oldest producer of chocolate in the United States.
The logo of the chocolate server (La Belle Chocolatière – the chocolate girl)
seen is this image was adopted by the company in 1883,
after a painting by a Swiss artist which can be found
in an art gallery in Dresden, Germany today.
In 1979, Walter Baker and Co. was incorporated into Kraft Foods.
