Lombart Chocolat was claimed to be the oldest chocolate manufacturer in France with one of the labels of the Lombart brand, dating back to 1760. The Lombart company produced luxury chocolates, fine sweets and tea and was famed for it's illustrious clients such as Madame Victoire and the Duchess of Angoulême. The brand later went on to receive a royal patent from King Louis XVI of France. This beautiful piece would have originally been part of a hamper or used to serve and display the chocolates on a branded advertising tray. These make fantastic and unique props or kitchens or side boards as trinket dishes.
