Footnotes

  • COMMERCIAL NOTE

    The inclusion of the United States flag in this set indicates that the explorer depicted is Robert Peary. In this post-WWI period, most toy manufacturers were trying to increase sales in America. The figures in this Lucotte box were created by CBG Mignot, and the use of a Lucotte label may well have been an experiment to brand some of the better Mignot product in the more prestigious brand after the purchase of the Lucotte name. The inclusion of handwritten labels in French for some of the pieces, e.g. the fish labelled Sujets 219 No.11H Morue(Cod) is possibly to inform a French retailer of the individual catalogue number for re-order.
