After Victor Bonnet took over the toy company from Flersheim in 1919, he makes, among other things the “Camion” (no. 261). This is an open truck from the “Les Auto-Transports” series.
Exactly three years ago in February 2018 we found a different “Camion” (no. 261) on Ebay
The nice thing about this Camion was not only the beautiful condition, but also the print on the hood: “Goulet-Turpin”.
The Internet teaches us that this is the name of the Goulet-Turpin couple who founded a distribution company under this name in their wedding year 1874.
Now 3 years later, we find in an “Interencheres” auction in France of Maître Philippe CASAL on the 20 April another “Camion” model in a rare color scheme, and also with a different text “Chocolat Casino” on the hood,
Internet tells us that this is the name of the Casino Group or Casino Guichard-Perrachon, it is a French mass-market retail group and founded on 2 August 1898 by Geoffroy Guichard. In there factories, Casino produced chocolate, oil, roasted coffee, distilled and homemade liquors and baked bread. This Casino Group still excists today.
