Exhibition of Russian Candy Wrapper Opens in Vladimir

An exhibition of candy and chocolate wrappers has been opened in the premises of the Vladimir-Suzdal Memorial Estate.
      For the first time the general public will see about 400 unique models of candy wrappers, sweet packings and labels, as well as confectionery commercial placards of the late 19th-early 20th centuries from private collections and museum funds.
      Because of huge competition among confectionery firms of Russia, businessmen often hid the names of artists, who created packing and label designs for their products.
      However, after 1917 Russian confectioners on a par with other successful businessmen were declared public enemies and so were subjected to repression or banished from the country. Their names, together with designs of packings, labels and candy wrappers, were for many years wiped out from Russian history.
