One thought on “Pitch perfect: candy

  1. I have in my posession a one pound chocolate box. On the front is ‘1840 Old Tyme Chocolates Park & Tilford, Newyork and Paris’. The printed picture is of a obviously elderly woman dressed in period clothes, knitting by candle light.

    I would love to find out the aproximate age of the box. It is in relativly good shape if it is an old piece.

    If there is any way to date it I would like to know how to do that. Can anyone help?
