Biscuits Lefèvre-Utile / LU-LU. 1897.
Lefèvre-Utile was a biscuit firm that worked hard on its image and always used first-class artists to create their advertising. “For them, Bouisset has a boy munching on a LU biscuit—and, since the company always tried to project an upper-class image, he put him in the uniform of a prestigious private school, with a smock and a medal for scholarship. The LU-LU boy became a trademark used on product boxes, and can be seen to this day painted on the entire gable wall of a six-story building on rue d’Auteil in Paris” (Wine Spectator, 143).
