This old cardboard box was once filled with Swiss Milk Chocolate Napolitains from the Chocolats Fjord company of Geneva Switzerland. The lid of the box takes its inspiration from the beloved child’s story of Snow White. Seven dwarfs or elves hold candles as they huddle around the sleeping girl with raven black hair. Lifting the lid creates a pop-up 3-D image of a cottage kitchen with the elves gathering around the table where Snow White is bringing a large bowl from the wood burning stove. The chocolates were in the tray that slides into the outer sleeve. The edge of the box has the ingredients and company information as does the back, most of which is not in English. I’m guessing this could be 1960’s but it may be into the 1970’s. Apparently the Chocolats Fjord company ceased operating under that name in the late 1970’s.
The box measures about 3 7/8” by7 ¾” by 5/8” and is in nice condition with minor wear.
