Chocolats et Thes
This is the rarest version of one of Steinlens most endearing images; normally, only the center portion was used by the Companie Francaise, but here, two golden-hue panel for more text were added top and bottom. There are some slight differences in the image, but this was also printed by Courmont who printed the better known image and its hard to know which came first. Unchanged is the charming domestic scene which advertises a tea importer. The cat was obviously expecting a dish of milk that would be used in the making of cocoa, the companys other most popular product. The girl is Steinlens daughter, Colette, and the woman is his wife, Emile.
