1889 Envelope with 5 Wax Seals from Lyon Silk Business to Paris Hotel1889 Envelope with 5 Wax Seals from Lyon Silk Business to Paris Hotel1889 Envelope with 5 Wax Seals from Lyon Silk Business to Paris Hotel

Franked July 31, 1889, this envelope is empty, but one hardly notices that the correspondence is missing. The envelope is interesting enough in its own right. On the front are two postal frankings as well as a stamp from the sender. H. Palluat and Testenoire was a major silk manufacturer in Lyon, France. I am not sure but I'm guessing that the "R" stamp could possibly mean the letter was sent 'recommande' (registered). Was Monsieur Boirivant the manager of the Hotel Continental in Paris? Perhaps he was buying large quantities of silk for hotel drapery? We may never know, but we do know it was serious business because verso there are not one, but five red wax seals bearing the silk company's initials. The envelope measures about 5 by 3-1/8 inches. A special piece for any ephemera collector!
