The Liebig Company of Germany was producer of "Meat Extract", somewhat like bouillion. In 1870 they began to publish fantastic colored lithographed cards in a wide variety of subjects and in several different languages. They were usually published in sets of 6, and the reverse of most cards bears advertising or a recipe.

A delight for the flower lover or lover of Switzerland!
