Antique Graphics Wednesday – 1923 Baker’s Chocolate and Cocoa Images

This image 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.

  1. Ooh, I love this one!

  2. So pretty! It’s always so fascinating to see the beautiful HAND DONE graphics used in the past. Computer graphics are one thing but these people were really artists. Even the most mundane product had beautiful lettering. Thanks!

  3. This is awesome! I want to make something chocolate related with this..maybe a pillow…and use those colors for the fabrics around that image. SO pretty! Thanks so much for sharing your lovelies with us for Pearls and Lace Thursday! I’m waitin’ to see what you do with those chippy posts…I’m guessing it’s something for that awesome kitchen you’re working on!

  4. Love this! Thanks for sharing!

  5. These are adorable, Angie! Thank you so much!

  6. Oh, what sweet images! And thank you for the history behind the server logo and the company; a little background always makes vintage items and graphics more endearing to me. xoxo

  7. I have that EXACT tin! i found it at my favorite sunday flea market about a month ago! I am especially fond of the company as my very FIRST apartment was in the old Baker Chocolate Mill in Dorchester, MA. My apartment was the former loading dock. in the lobby and courtyard of the complex were all kinds of equipment salvaged from the factory. old photographs of the mill and works line the lobby walls as well. I LOVED living there! they are condos now. “merci” for the image. it is pristine (not like my tin which is a bit “worn-in.”)

  8. Love this one!

  9. Thank you, Angie, for sharing your wonderful graphic at Potpourri Friday!
