Chocolat Menier. 1893.
“Originally seen from the back in an 1892 design writing the words 'Chocolat Menier' on a wall, she returned many times over the years, sometimes scrawling different words in other languages, but always cutting an irresistible tomboyish figure” (Gold, p. 43). This variant shows the girl scrawling the brand’s name on the wall.
