Fourrures Canton: This design was first created in 1924, the second edition with blue background dates from the 1930’s. The 3rd edition was printed in 1949 from the same stones but by roger,  the son of  auguste marsens the first printer. These are marked d’apres. When asked why the original black background was replaced with blue, Richard Canton, of canton firs, said it was for better winter visibility.
