(1) L’Ours Martin number 193

A SMALL SERIES ABOUT…….

Is it a box label or a catalog image? Note these images, as you can see there are clear differences between a box label and an image from a catalog.

Original box label 1903
Picture from de Victor Bonnet & Cie catalog around 1927 And is this specific image also used as a box label? Maybe, but I don’t know, I haven’t come across an original box with this label yet.

This L’Ours Martin is taken as an example, of many more Martin toys are examples of the differences between the box labels and the catalog images. In the old Martin catalogs the differences are often minimal but in the later Victor Bonnet & Cie catalog the differences are many more larger as this example shows.
