Foh Chong (China) Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Chinese Series c1930 Chinese Series c1930 M10 - Not being able to read the Chinese characters on the front we can’t tell you much about this set other than the fact that it has pink borders, is numbered in English on the front and appears to show ancient characters from Chinese history or myth with the artwork nicely done in a traditional style. The red printed backs show a building, presumably their headquarters, along with the company name in English and a trade mark. Foh Chong were among a number of Chinese firms producing cigarettes and issuing cards in the 1920-30s period.
